Quote from: Department of Transport and Main RoadsIn response to your request, the following information has been released under the administrative access scheme:A. Total patronage carried on Surfside Buslines (Transit Australia Group) annually for the financial years from 2003/2004 to 2012/2013 inclusive, both on the basis of:-"Paid" or "initial" boardings (ie not involving a transfer from an earlier service); and-All boardings (ie including transfers from other buses or trains).These figures will be different, as under the first category a journey involving 2 transfers counts as a single trip only, whereas under the second category it would count as 3 trips. Most other agencies in Australia report on the basis of both (eg the Public Transport Authority of Western Australia, the DPTI in South Australia etc).Assumptions/Limitations:1. We are not able to accurately determine the split between 'paid' or 'initial' boardings. There are passenger trips that are captured via the bus 'count' button. Not all of these are Transfers and it is not possible to know which of these trips are transfers. The Tourist pass further complicates this as we cannot determine which passenger trips equate to a 'paid' or 'initial' boarding as the monies are paid up front. Student STAS passes also result in the same issue.. Since the go Card was delivered in July 2008, there is also the issue of different classes of tickets (prior to this date) which further complicate the definition of a transfer. As a result, we are only able to provide passenger trip data for Surfside Buslines.2. A Passenger Trip is defined as continuous travel between two points. This includes Transfers. Hence, a Journey may include multiple passenger trips.Response:Financial Year Surfside: Passenger Trips2004/2005 15,760,2762005/2006 17,283,7642006/2007 18,702,4982007/2008 16,470,9902008/2009 16,616,2052009/2010 16,716,4832010/2011 17,145,7952011/2012 17,024,5982012/2013 16,841,727B. The same data for the same periods of time in relation to the Gold Coast railway line. This may be in the form of total annual figures for the stations south of Beenleigh, which from 2009/2010 would include Varsity Lakes.Assumptions/Limitations:1. Gold Coast Railway Line is defined by transactions occurring at the following rail stations: Ormeau, Coomera, Helensvale, Nerang, Robina, & Varsity Lakes2. Rail Station data is only available from FY06/07 onwards.3.
