Improving the quality of Market Harborough's rail service
The Government’s Office of Rail and Road publishes annual statistics including estimates of station usage. For the reporting year April 2022 to March 2023, these figures were released on 14th December 2023. Having had a turbulent year, with industrial disputes and engineering work frequently disrupting our train service, we were keen to see the level of usage of the station. The total for Market Harborough in the year was 762,792. This is a 43.6% increase on 2021-22’s total of 531,140. Given the disruption, this is a healthy increase and represents a good step back towards the pre-Covid peak of 898,058 in 2019-20. It made Market Harborough the 574th busiest station on the network, from a total of 2,578 stations in April 2023! The main destination or origin for journeys from or to Market Harborough was St Pancras.
