Strong improvement in train punctuality

Last year, the Swedish persontågen the worst punctuality in six years. In figures it meant that 87,8% of all trains arrived on time.

With 92,2% punctual trains in march 2019 is the passenger traffic on the rail now on a clearly higher level than that prevailing before last year's race. The figure is 4.1 percentage points higher than the same month of last year.

to begin approaching the state's ambitious goal: 95% of all trains should arrive on time in 2020.

To arrive ”on time” defined as no more than a five-minute deviation from the timetable.

For the entire 2019 years first quarter, the result is slightly more modest: 90,5% punctual trains. But it is 3 percentage points higher than the January to march 2018.

the Swedish transport administration explained last year unusually bad punctuality with two things: the weather and renovation works.

was snowy and cold, but the winter at the end of the year was snöfattig. During the autumn also had some renovations started to give effect. Very really increased the timeliness to 91,4 per cent in the month of december. The trend has now continued.

– the Measures we initiated in the autumn gives the results, " says Roberto Maiorana, director of the traffic management at the Swedish transport administration, in a comment.

" We are not satisfied with this level, but the work continues.

tågslag. The worst punctuality is the rule fjärrtågen, and it was also they who lost the most in the last year: only 71.9 percent of the långdistanstågen then come forward in time.

Kortdistanstågen is better to arrive on time. In march of this year they reached almost up to the goal, the Swedish transport administration has set itself up for the next year: 94.4 percent of them held the time.

Kortdistanstågen account for more than half of all rail passenger transport services.

the Swedish railway traffic is possibly slightly better than its reputation if you make international comparisons. In Germany, the rail services were previously regarded as punctually as clockwork, came last year, three of the four long-distance trains arrive in time, thus a marginally higher proportion than in Sweden.
