Improving our trains

Every day we use 400 trains that cover about 4200 journeys. This means that each train does around 10 different journeys throughout the day.

Our trains run 69 million miles per year, which is the equivalent of traveling to Mars and back. In order to keep our fleet in service, our engineers complete 5000 maintenance services per year – that’s the equivalent of putting your car into the garage 14 times a day.

Our train doors open and close approximately 500,000 times a day, or 350 times per minute.
