Tube journeys pass 100 million in a month for first time since February 2020

The latest four-weekly figures for transport usage in London show that the Underground passed 100 million journeys fir the first time since early 2020.

A total of 101.8 million journeys were made compared to 95.1 million in the previous year. That’s still down on 117.5 seen in the same general period in 2019.

However of course there’s now the Elizabeth line running, which racked up 17.8 million journeys.

DLR usage was at 7.9 million and up from 2022’s 7.6 million which compares to 9.8 million in 2019.

London Overground was at 15 million compared to 14 million last year and not shy of 15.8 million in 2019.

It should be noted these four weekly periods don’t exactly correlate and fluctuate due to amount of weekdays in each period plus other factors such as engineering work and industrial action.

Yet these numbers will be welcome to TfL and combining DLR, Elizabeth line, London Overground and the Underground sees numbers over the period not far off 2019 levels.


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.
