Folkestone Harbour Railway Ltd


Detailed calculations are included in the Business Case, the totals are shown below: -

To and from National Rail Stations -: £650,018

Park and Ride (Rail Passengers) -: £112,335

Park and Ride (Town Visitors)-: £852,541

Local Passengers-:£304,224

Total Income-: £1,919,118

Calculations for defining income streams are taken on a basis that the line is a single travel zone and the broad itineraries are irrespective of which station the passengers travel from or to – except for those specified as being the Park and Ride or Folkestone Central (and logically beyond).   Calculations currently ignore the potential for additional traffic generated by Seafront events such as water sports or air shows.
