Our performance

We work hard to make sure your journeys with us run smoothly. And we want to be as open and honest as we can when we talk about our performance.

We measure our performance in a number of different ways. For a more detailed breakdown of how our services are doing, download our monthly performance report.

New ways of measuring performance

From 1 April 2019, all train companies will publish ‘On Time’ (to the minute) performance figures. These will show the percentage of station calls that were on time.

These figures, as well as other detailed results, can be found in our Monthly On-Time Report.

Punctuality and performance

  • Punctuality - the percentage of our trains that arrive at their destination within an agreed ‘on-time’ window
  • Reliability - the percentage of our trains that run
  • Performance results
  • 12-month Moving Annual Average

Updated Thursday 11 February 2021. Discounts apply from 14 February 2021 to 13 March 2021 inclusive.

To make sure everyone receives the same treatment, we will still use these definitions when we check if a customer can claim compensation.

When things go wrong

If we don’t meet our targets, season ticket holders may be able to claim compensation.
