Rail (UK) - - Network -

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.”
