Half of ScotRail trains miss punctuality targets at Scotland's busiest stations - updated [Herald]

Date: 07/08/2017

The Herald updated this news item with a correction on the 8th thus; We reported yesterday that ScotRail missed punctuality targets at nearly 60 per cent of stations. This was inaccurate. There are no punctuality targets for individual stations and the stations quoted represent only 20 per cent of those from which ScotRail operates. The most recent figures show that 93.7 per cent of ScotRail trains met the industry standard public performance measure (PPM).

SCOTLANDS rail operator has failed to meet a target for trains to arrive on time at nearly three-fifths of stations, according to figures. A total of 43 out of 73 stations missed ScotRails public performance measure, which currently stands at 90.8 per cent, to arrive or terminate within five minutes of schedule in July. The stations include Edinburgh Waverley, Aberdeen, Dundee, Perth and Inverness. Passenger watchdog Transport Focus described the performance as disappointing while Scottish Labour said the number of trains arriving late is unacceptable.
