Metrorail train, Cape Town, South Africa
The Metrorail Customer Census 2004 was carried out over a period of 6½ weeks during which all scheduled weekday and weekend services were counted on the four main lines, the Cape Flats line between Cape Town and Retreat, the Cape Town to Simons Town line, Central line which serves Khayelitsha and Mitchells Plain and the Northern line which serves Bellville, Strand, Stellenbosch, Worcester and Malmesbury. The project was to count and record the number of commuters boarding and disembarking at each station en-route for each scheduled train. 840 enumerators, recruited from the communities close to the base stations were used for the count and a total of 1,162 trains were counted with the largest portion being the Central line.
