Default Rail Census 2015

The main findings from the 2015 Census are:

Close to 141,500 journeys were taken on census day (Nov 19, 2015), up 13% on the 2014 data

Dublinís Connolly, Pearse, Heuston and Tara continue to be the busiest rail stations in Ireland, between them handling a third of all rail passengers on census day

The 10 busiest stations on the network between them accounted for nearly half (47%) of all passenger movements on the day

25 stations generated fewer than 100 journeys on census day. Of the quietest stations, 12 experienced fewer than 30 journeys

For the fourth successive year, the busiest train in Ireland was the 8:00 DART from Greystones to Malahide, with a total of 1,336 passengers using this service. The peak passenger load on this service was between Booterstown and Sydney Parade, when 923 passengers were on board

The most heavily loaded commuter service was the 07:12 Drogheda to Bray, which carried 691 passengers between Howth Junction and Connolly
One thing I notice is the peak morning loading between 2014/2015 are the exact same apart from the addition of the 05:55 Gorey - Connolly (additional to 2015). On the other had the evening peak are different so is it really possible there was not a single change in the morning loading?
