Tube Passenger numbers dropped - and Travel Update

Figures on numbers of tube passengers since the London Attacks

A couple of days ago I
blogged about the drop in passenger numbers on the tube. At the time it seemed hard to see by what percentage. But the BBC report have just spoken to a senior manager at the tube and say:

"Tube passenger numbers have dropped by 30% at weekends and between 5% and 15% on weekdays, since the 7 July bombings".

And this seems to clarify my earlier thoughts that commuter levels are about the same but tourists and non regular travellers are travelling on the tube less.

Circle Line - Partial Service

Also according to the BBC article, the Circle Line is partially up and running in the rush hour period, with a shuttle service every 20 minutes between 7am and 9am and between 4pm and 6.15pm from today, with the service expected to improve over the next few days. Nothing on the Tube's website as yet to confirm that though.
