Train performance

These statistics describe the development of railway vehicles on-time performance.

About the statistics

The key variable in the statistical content is the Combined Performance Measure (CPM). CPM corresponds to the proportion of scheduled trains that have arrived on time. In other words, on-time performance (punctuality) is weighed against the total number of trains run (regularity) to generate a single performance measure. Users of the statistics are afforded some freedom to determine for themselves when a train is to be considered on-time, in that a number of different time margins are presented in the reports.

Our hope is that these statistics will serve as useful documentation for anyone interested in tracing the evolution of on-time train performance. Because feedback from users of the statistics is important to Transport Analysis, we welcome your viewpoints on the scope and content of the statistics.

Scope of the survey

The survey covers passenger trains on Swedish rail systems, with the exception of trains on the Swedish lines Saltsjöbanan and Roslagsbanan. As a result, Train Performance is not fully comparable with Transport Analysis's other statistical products for railways, i.e. Rail Traffic, Railway Transport and Rail Traffic Accidents. The statistics pertain to conditions at the terminus stations.

For reasons for confidentiality, no data are reported per operator or train station. Most of the data are aggregated for all of Sweden, or for various categories of trains.

Train performance is a statistical product in development. In future we also hope to be able to provide data for freight trains, conditions at stations other than the terminus, and information on how passengers and freight transport customers are affected by train delays.

Publications

All publications are posted electronically on this website in pdf and Excel formats. Preliminary statistics are published quarterly; the production time is roughly one month. The statistics become final with the publication of the annual statistics. The annual statistics are published just over two months after year-end.

The pdf version does not contain all the statistics from previously published periods. The Excel version is suitable for independent processing, and statistics from all time periods are accessible there. Click on the plus sign above the first year to view all the data.
