Official journey data for the latest quarter (July to September 2023) again shows Hull Trains to be one of the leaders of UK rail industry.

A total of 397 million journeys were made on the UK’s railways in the latest quarter, which was a 14% increase on the 350 million journeys made in the same period in 2022.

Hull Trains leads the way in terms of long-distance operators, reporting a 34% growth in journeys when compared to July to September last year. It’s sister company, Lumo also showed an increase in journeys; up 16% on last year’s figures. 

The latest report by the the rail industry regulator, the Office of Rail and Road (ORR), is further evidence of Hull Trains’ stability and strength within the industry, with the local open-access operator now delivering more journeys than it was prior to the pandemic.

Martijn Gilbert, Managing Director of Hull Trains, said: “We have had many great stories to report in recent weeks and months which just goes to show what a hugely successful year it has been for Hull Trains. For two consecutive quarters, we have reported the highest rise in passenger journeys among long distance operators, compared to the same period last year, highlighting passenger confidence in our services which, as we’ve previously reported, are the most reliable in England.

“It all bodes well for 2024 when we will continue our work to deliver great value, low carbon and dependable rail services for the communities of Beverley, Cottingham, Hull, Brough, Howden, Selby, Doncaster, Retford and Grantham.

These latest figures again show that Open Access operators are playing a key role in the growth of long-distance rail travel across all operators on the East Coast Mainline route”

There were 2.2 million passenger journeys recorded for open-access operators combined, which includes Hull Trains and Lumo, an increase compared with the previous year (8%).
