How busy is my train?

To help you decide which train to catch, we've been keeping an eye on how busy they are likely to be from a social distancing perspective.

Not all of our trains have automatic passenger counting technology on board, so data is often collected manually. We will update this page when we become aware of changes. You can now check all weekday Birmingham (New Street and Snow Hill) services and we will aim to expand this towards weekends and the Nuneaton – Leamington Spa line in due course.
