Railfuture passenger countsWhen conducting station passenger counts, either as part of a Railfuture activity or whilst visiting a station, the counts should be recorded in a systematic way to aid collation.

Please note: if Railfuture volunteers undertake a formal count, which involves being present at a station for a length of time, then approval needs to be obtained from the train operator. Otherwise you may be in breach of railway byelaws. Advice from Network Rail here.
See also Station usage estimates from the Office of Rail Regulation. These have been proved unreliable, particularly in the London and other city areas, but at least give campaigners a starting point.
