On average, there are around 700,000 passenger journeys on the line every weekday, with the busiest day recorded on 18 April 2024 when there were 787,000 journeys across the line. The busiest station is Tottenham Court Road, followed by Liverpool Street.

The highest demand growth on the line so far has been between Reading and Hayes & Harlington, which has seen an 80 per cent increase in demand on TfL services. Howard Smith, TfL’s Director of the Elizabeth line, said: "The Elizabeth line has rightly and quickly become one of the most popular railways in the country.

“It has also been one of the most reliable, and earlier this year we achieved our best quarterly performance so far. The Elizabeth line continues to be transformational for people travelling across London and the South East. The huge numbers of customers using our accessible trains and stations is a real testament to the importance of the railway investment and to all those involved in keeping it running."
