The National Rail Trends (NRT) Portal provides access to up-to-date statistics held by the Office of Rail and Road (ORR). Registration is free and simple, and provides access to all content and functionality of the NRT portal. Register now to create your own reports.

Following recent consultation with RSMG, ORR is proposing to change the publication schedule of Network Rail Outputs and Indicators - Key Statistics from quarterly to 6-monthly to align with the publication schedule of ORR’s Network Rail Monitor which these statistics support. The punctuality data (PPM, CaSL and Right Time) included in these statistics is already updated every period for each train operator separately on the data portal. This change to the publication schedule will take effect from the start of 2017, therefore the statistics will be published in June and November each year only.   

If you have any comments or queries on this proposed change, please contact rail.stats@orr.gsi.gov.uk.


As part of our commitment to improving the quality of our statistics in line with requirements for National Statistics accreditation, we introduced themed statistical releases in 2013. These releases provide contextual commentary on statistics across a common topic (e.g. rail usage) and aid the user in the interpretation of the data. There are eight themed statistical releases; four are published  quarterly and four annually.  A Quality Report also accompanies each statistical release. Please contact us at rail.stats@orr.gsi.gov.uk for more information.  A summary of the key findings and next steps of the feedback survey on ORR statistical releases and quality reports is now available.

Also available on the statistical releases webpage are factsheets to accompany some of the datasets on the data portal which are not part of the eight themed statistical releases, e.g. TOC Key Statistics, Rail Passenger Assists and Disabled Persons Railcards.

A dataset of Estimates of Station Usage  consisting of estimates of the total numbers of people entering, exiting and changing at every station in Great Britain is published annually along with a methodology report and infographics.

We also provide data on request where possible and these are published on the additional datasets webpage.
