German term or phrase: Beförderungsfall (-fälle)
I came across this a while ago in a brochure on a local public transport system; it was used to express the number of passengers carried on the system over a period of three months. Is any other jargonese in use in this kind of context apart from "passenger"?

Explanation:
... is the basic statistic gathered in Britain, as far as I can tell. More generally we'd also talk about passenger volumes rising or falling but that's not as precise as what you're looking for.

I'd like to split the points between the two of you, as there's hardly any difference between your two replies. However, as the target audience was British and "passenger journey" is evidently according to "Academic" the basic statistic gathered in the UK, I'll go along with this. Thanks also for an extremely informative website!

(linked/unlinked) passenger trip


Explanation:
Here are some excerpts from a Sacramento, California, public transit glossary that might be helpful:

http://www.sacrt.com/Short_Range/glossary.html#S

Unlinked Passenger Trips — The total number of passengers who board public transit vehicles. A passenger is counted each time he/she boards a revenue vehicle even though the boarding may be the result of a transfer from another route to complete the same one-way journey. Where linked or unlinked is not designated, unlinked is assumed. Synonyms: Passengers, Passenger Trips

Unlinked Trip — A trip taken by an individual on one specific mode. A linked trip may involve two or more unlinked trips.
