Alongside Network Rail, we regularly set new goals to make sure we’re delivering a service that we can be proud of. Every year, we report on our progress to provide you with information on our performance and achievements.

Improving performance on Southeastern

We’re dedicated to providing you with the most reliable rail service possible. Our Joint Performance Strategy, published by Southeastern and Network Rail, demonstrates this commitment to improving the reliability of our network for passengers.

Our services

Southeastern run 2016 passenger trains on weekdays, 1755 on Saturdays and 967 on Sundays. We manage 166 stations and we serve 174 stations. 

This makes us one of the biggest and busiest National Rail operators in the country.


Keeping you moving

Punctuality is hugely important to us because we know how frustrating  delays and cancellations can be. 

We monitor how punctual our services are by using the Public Performance Measure (PPM). PPM is measured by the percentage of trains we run on time against our planned timetable. For this purpose, only trains that run their entire planned route and arrive within five minutes of their planned arrival time are considered on time.

We publish reports on our punctuality online as well as on station posters at the end of each rail period.

We always take customer feedback into account and use it for the continuous improvement of our services. To see what our customers are saying about us, download the latest National Rail Passenger Survey (NRPS) report


Period 1: 1 - 28 April 2018

Overall performance

  • Performance on average this period: 89.1% 
  • Performance on average over the last year: 88.2% 

Train punctuality targets 

Together with Network Rail, we set ourselves punctuality targets to help us monitor our performance and identify what improvements we need to make. 

Targets are set according to seasons and lines of route. This helps to account for major infrastructure improvement works, such as the Thameslink Programme, and external factors like poor weather.
