Waverley handles more Festival fans
Three and a half million people passed through Edinburgh Waverley station in August, a 7% increase compared with August 2016.
The ScotRail Alliance said the second weekend of the Edinburgh Festival was the busiest few days of the month, with 384,000 people passing through the station in three days.
“For three and a half million people to have travelled through Waverley during August shows the impact of the festivals,” said Edinburgh Waverley station manager Juliet Donnachie.
“Getting people to and from Edinburgh during the festivals is a massive operation. Our station teams at Waverley and across the network did a great job.”
