Project: National Rail Passenger Matrix

Reference: H110

Last update: 19/11/2003 15:30:59


The trip matrices can be created in up to 16 market segments, representing ticket and journey types. The software is flexible so that only trips for a users' detailed zones of interest are created, whilst aggregating trips away from the detailed zones of interest, and rejecting data which is entirely outside the study area. By selecting data in this way, further comparisons can be made with census and national travel survey data of rail journeys.


This project created software running on a PC suitable for manipulating the data from passenger ticketing relating to stations to enable the data to be used in the national transport modelling work, which uses land-use zoning. It creates matrices between each origin and destination station, whilst enabling resolution of the journeys made so that they are related to origin zone and access profiles. For a selected rail station, the data can be compared on a ward-by-ward basis with other surveys, and software.
