The purpose of this research is to provide a series of Forecasts to the Spanish Railway Network Association in order to mitigate any possible events around passenger utilization spikes over multiple routes across Spain.

The study will be focused on the most frequented routes, which are Barcelona, Madrid, Bilbao and Valencia. The report will be divided into two sections.  First section will cover a comparison between current passenger utilization and data extracted from 2018, presented in a graphical form and interpreted.  The second section will go throughout a range of forecasts of passenger utilization spikes on weekends, bank holidays, events like concerts or football matches, and peak times like Christmas or July and August holidays.

This project will allow RENFE to predict passenger numbers during peak times and tackle any impact on their services and to consider increasing capacity on their trains effectively.
