How are we doing?

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

We measure how punctual our services are using the ‘On Time’ measure, in common with other train operators. This measure records punctuality to the minute at every station, and not just the final destination of the train.

We measure our performance in four-week long periods, with 13 periods being reported each year. The reporting year starts in April with Period 1. You will be able to see the most up to date figures here as soon as they become available (usually around 2 weeks after the end of each Period). 

You can find out more about the industry's current official measure of punctuality on the Network Rail website

Current Period: Period 06 

22 August 2021 - 18 September 2021
