The estimated number of users at Rotherham Central has fallen after an increase in the previous year.
Undergoing a £10.4m redevelopment and re-opening in 2012, the estimated number of users peaked at 718,082 in 2014 – 2015 but this has dropped to 689,540 for 2015 – 2016.
Rotherham Central Station opened in 1987 and is located on a branch line constructed to serve the new station. Previously Rotherham’s main railway station was located in Masbrough, and was served by mainline railway services. However, Rotherham Central was considered a more convenient location due to its proximity to the town centre.
The figures are produced by the Office of Rail and Road and station usage is estimated using ticket sales as many UK station’s are without barriers. Journeys associated with ticketless travel are not included.
