The NPTDR database contains a snapshot of every public transport journey in Great Britain for a selected week in October each year. Data is currently available for October 2004 to October 2011.

The dataset is compiled with information from many sources, including local public transport information from each of the traveline regions, also coach services from the national coach services database and rail information from the Association of Train Operating Companies (ATOC). NPTDR is mainly used by local authorities and other organisations in the production of accessibility indicators via software tools such as Accession.

Single file download links have been provided for the 2009, 2010 and 2011data. Data from earlier years are only available in separate area files (as 2009 onwards data are too). However, there too many files to provide individual links. All data are available at

Data collection period: 2011 - 3 October to 9 October 2010 - 4 October to 10 October 2009 - 5 October to 11 October
