Re: how many people on a transporter

"Day of the Dove" would seem to make it clear that one transporter console can beam up at least nine people simultaneously - although one transporter platform is only shown materializing five people at a time, while the others are "on hold", perhaps being interpretable as the combined use of two transporter platforms and their separate "hold areas" or buffers.
In a similar vein, at the end of The City on the Edge of Forever, we saw seven people dematerialized simultaneously from the planet's surface. Of course, we never saw how they materialized back aboard ship.
