1. ScotRail introduced a new methodology which better estimates Strathclyde Zonecard journeys from 2009/10. Figures from 2003/04 onwards present the impact of this on previously reported data to provide a more meaningful year on year comparison.Note that this has no impact on actual journeys undertaken. Passenger kms have also been adjusted to reflect this.
2. Figures affected by industrial action.
3. Scheduled train kilometres are calculated by the Office of Rail Regulation using the published winter and summer timetables. They do not take account of subsequent changes ( e.g. cancellations and emergency timetables etc).
