A map launched by the Campaign for Better Transport (CBT) charts railway station usage from 1997, and reveals huge growth in passenger numbers
The map shows that 686 stations attract more than one million entries and exits per year, compared with 215 in 1997/98. Of those, 85 stations recorded more than five million entries and exits.
There are some significant increases in usage for smaller stations, with Gowerton (in Wales) recording a 17-fold rise in passenger numbers and Needham Market (Suffolk) a 13-fold increase.
