Metro's solid performance continues
Metro has posted six months of on-time performance of all train services exceeding 90 per cent.
In September, 93.08 per cent of trains ran on time and 98.53 per cent of timetabled services were delivered.
About Metro’s performance targets
Metro’s performance thresholds are to run at least 98 per cent of trains each month and for more than 88 per cent of these services to be punctual.
The government has applied a tougher measurement system under Metro’s contract for delivery and punctuality.
For example, a train that bypasses the city loop or doesn’t reach its final destination now contributes to the cancellation rate, whereas under the previous contract it was counted as a full service.
The definition of an on-time train has also changed, reducing from the previous threshold of five minutes and 59 seconds to the current, shorter threshold of four minutes and 59 seconds.
