Train performance figures

Our performance in figures​

We report the proportion of trains that arrive to the minute at each station on the timetable, where technology allows.

Our performance figures show how punctually our trains are reaching stations, from ‘early’ through to ‘30 minutes after’ the timetable stated. We also report the Public Performance Measurement of the number of trains reaching their final destination 'on time'. We show how many trains ran with fewer carriages than planned, and how many were delayed or cancelled. Results are based on actual performance over the past four weeks compared to the published timetable.
