At Metro, we closely monitor the performance of all our train services. We are committed to providing reliable train services and we work closely with the Victorian Government, Department of Transport and Public Transport Victoria (PTV) to ensure we not only meet, but exceed, our customer service and performance targets. Our partnership with the Victorian Government emphasises the importance of delivering services in line with the agreed timetable. While we always aim to meet and exceed our performance targets, on occasion, certain circumstances may mean we fall short. Our Performance Targets relate to:
‘On time’ is defined as the proportion of services which arrived at their destination no later than four minutes and 59 seconds after the scheduled time in the timetable.
Measured as a proportion of the timetabled train services run.
There are also compensation thresholds. If we don’t run at least 98% of trains each month with 90% or more of these services punctual, eligible customers will be compensated. Our monthly, network-wide, performance data is available online and at stations around the 10th day of the month and includes any eligibility for compensation.
The Department of Transport also publishes monthly punctuality and delivery data for train services, including line specific information. You can access this information here.
