Elizabeth line breaks record for single day’s passenger journeys

The Elizabeth line has set a new daily record for passenger number according to Transport for London.

There were 685,000 journeys made on Thursday 15th June topping previous bests.

On a wider level, the DLR, London Overground and Tube also continue to see healthy recovery back to pre-pandemic numbers. The DLR was up to 92 per cent of 2019 levels in the first month of the financial year.

In contrast, Southeastern are languishing as the neglected Metro network sees a worse service alongside a chronic staff shortage at many stations.

Travelling across the Elizabeth line network remains impressive one year one, with cavernous stations making travel a joy rather than struggle.

It’s still hard to choose a favourite stations given all in the core are a pleasure to use.

Whitechapel station this week

Whitechapel has been looking good this week, to give one of many examples.

Running a site alone takes time and a fair bit of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my living costs as a private renter.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    One thought on “Elizabeth line breaks record for single day’s passenger journeys

    • I definitely agree the new stations are all fantastic but I have noticed that recently Whitechapel Eastbound platform (on the eastern / most forward part of the platform) is a distinct and strong smell of mould. Looking at the tunnelling there I do wonder if mould is growing in the tunnel due to some water and dampness making its way through. Should definitely be looked at.
