Top 10 overcrowded train services: England and Wales

10 most overcrowded peak train services recorded in passenger count data collected by train operators.

Shows the 10 most overcrowded peak train services recorded in passenger count data collected by train operators.

The Department for Transport (DfT) collects rail passenger counts from train operating companies to monitor train crowding levels. All franchises let by DfT require the train operator to address crowding. Operators must plan their timetables to ensure, as far as possible, that crowding is not unduly concentrated on any particular route or service.
