Answered By: 
The Mayor

Forecasted usage of the Bakerloo line extension between Elephant and Castle and Hayes in 2031 is approximately 116,000 trips per day. Of these trips approximately 59,000 will board between Lewisham and Elephant and Castle (equating to 52 per cent of the usage of the Bakerloo line extension). The remaining 57,000 trips are expected to board between Hayes and Ladywell. 

No assumptions have been made about growth over and above that assumed within the London Plan, which could be facilitated by the extension in Opportunity Areas along the route. This may further increase demand.
