The ORR rail station stats were released today. Some staggering figures were released where Covid really did change everything where some London interchange stations performed better this year than the main terminal stations.

Stratford in East London was the most used rail station in the UK, followed by London Victoria. Highbury & Islington & Clapham Junction had more users than Birmingham New Street while Barking and East Croydon had more than London Euston, while Vauxhall had more users than London King's Cross.

BNS is nearly always the most used station outside London, the surprises being the local interchanges within London though. Presumably because there were enforced rules about not travelling unless necessary or from region to region or area to area. I remember the first week of the first lockdown borderline checking people for ID at King's Cross St Pancras LT station (which remained consistently busy throughout Covid, although the lockdown months there was a notable lack of a 'peak' with most travel being done between 5:30 and 6:30am, 13:30 and 14:30pm and between 1630 and 1830 or 2030 and 2130pm for all the 'key workers').

Wonder if next year's figures will reflect a slow return to some normality?

I think my favourite Covid transport stat is that for a while last March, Aberdeen overtook Heathrow as Britain's busiest airport in terms of aircraft movements. (ITV didn't appear to notice.)
