From their collection titled ‘Let’s blame Sturgeon for a rail crisis’, ignoring the union leaders and the Scotrail managers, the Herald, offers the above. They also have this today:
We’ve already seen:
Before the pandemic in 2019, seat occupancy on Scotrail journeys was only 23%! Seats were empty for 77% of the time.
I can’t find Scotrail data for 2021/2022 but UK rail traffic is at best at 70% of the 2019 level, meaning occupancy levels, if we kept the same level of services, would be only 18%.
UPDATE: Thanks to Legerwood:
Scotrail passenger journeys (in millions)
2019 20 96.4
2020-21 14.4 which is just 14.9% of the passenger journeys in the previous year. A dramatic picture of the effect of lockdown and home working on railway usage.
