Passengers are at the heart of everything we do and our priority is delivering the consistent, reliable services they deserve.
Our partnership with the Department of Transport emphasises the importance of running trains on time with tougher performance targets.
To ensure we’re delivering the best possible service, we invest $12 million in our network every week to maintain our infrastructure, rail equipment, trains and technology.
Our teams are working hard every day to minimise delays caused by trespassing, emergency services requests, equipment faults, ill passengers, vandalism, external power outages, infrastructure upgrade works, vehicles on level crossings and extreme weather.
We are committed to continuously improving the performance of the network, and the experience for our passengers.
For the month of July, Metro’s punctuality and delivery results were 91.6 per cent and 98.0 per cent respectively.
This month there was an increase in delays due to staff availability as a result of COVID-19, equipment faults and illegal activity on the network, which significantly impacted punctuality and
There was a 65 per cent increase in external factors, such as illegal activity and passenger behaviour, that impacted train services in July (compared to the previous month).
With our punctuality and delivery targets missed, eligible passengers can claim compensation.
Factors impacting performance in July included:
- Staff availability delayed 471 trains
- Equipment faults delayed 1,222 trains
- Illegal activity in the rail corridor and on trains delayed 1,667 trains
Metro scheduled more than 66,000 services in July.

These are available from the PTV website. In the case of a damaged or defective myki you can visit any premium station and receive a replacement card. Any existing balance on your old card will be transferred to the new one as part of the replacement process.
