Public Transport Victoria today published performance results for August 2016, with V/Line delivering steady punctuality for regional passengers.
- V/Line delivered 89.9 per cent of services on-time in August.
- Yarra Trams delivered 83.3 per cent of services on-time in August.
- Metro delivered 92.2 per cent of services on-time in August.
Punctuality on V/Line services remained steady in August, with 89.9 per cent of the 7986 scheduled regional train services running on-time.
Public Transport Victoria Acting Executive Director, Performance and Contract Management, Warwick Horsley said V/Line passengers were continuing to benefit from improved services reliability since the introduction of a new timetable which began on 27 June.
“in August we’ve continued to see steady performance for our regional passengers, as well as the return of train services after removing level three crossings at Centre, North, and McKinnon Roads,” Mr Horsley said.
“The Geelong line has also once again experienced its best punctuality result in ten years, with 91.6 per cent of services running on-time, the highest number since July 2011.”
Yarra Trams delivered a reliable month for passengers by meeting performance thresholds for punctuality and reliability in August, overall delivering 98.8 per cent of timetabled services.
Metro’s punctuality has continued to exceed punctuality thresholds having now achieved this for 53 consecutive months, with 92.2 per cent of services running on-time.
“A number of major projects have been underway in August including the construction of a new tram terminus for Melbourne’s busiest tram line, Route 96, in Acland Street,” Mr Horsley said.
“These sorts of improvements are only possible thanks to the patience and understanding of our passengers, who share our vision for a modern and accessible transport network for all Victorians in the future.”
The August performance results are now available on the PTV website.
