November performance results published
Added: 9 December 2016
Public Transport Victoria today published performance results for November 2016, with performance remaining steady across all three modes.
- V/Line delivered 83.9 per cent of services on-time in November.
- Yarra Trams delivered 82.2 per cent of services on-time in November.
- Metro delivered 91.1 per cent of services on-time in November.
Public Transport Victoria Executive Director, Franchise Operator Management, Alan Fedda said that Metro trains had continued to exceed performance thresholds.
“Metro have continued to deliver record low unplanned express runs as well as more punctual services in the peak compared to last month,” Mr Fedda said.
“Keeping our customers moving while works to remove level crossings continue across the city is important while we transform the network.”
Performance results for Yarra Trams remained steady despite major maintenance and renewal works on Swanston and Collins Streets in November.
“Yarra Trams successfully carried out significant track renewal works along one of the busiest tram corridors in the world,” Mr Fedda said.
“We appreciate the patience and understanding of our customers as these works are carried out, it would not be possible to run a world class tram network without their flexibility.”
While V/Line services experienced a challenging month, passengers on the Seymour and Shepparton lines recorded improvements in punctuality.
“It’s good to see improvements for passengers along the Seymour and Shepparton line, however we want to see this for all passengers on all lines across regional Victoria,” Mr Fedda said.
“V/Line are currently undertaking continued maintenance and renewal works, including assessing and upgrading level crossings.
“These works will contribute to a safer, more reliable network and allow V/Line to deliver more punctual services to passengers in regional Victoria.”
The November performance results are now available on the PTV website at Track Record.
