Punctuality is fundamental for us

It is also fundamental for our passengers, as surveys have shown us. There are many factors at work behind punctual operation. A whole bundle of measures has contributed to keeping punctuality at an internationally very high level in the last few years.

A bundle of measures

  • Improvement of the existing network, in particular the elimination of lines subject to speed restrictions
  • Good planning of travel, connection, stopping and turning times
  • Expansion of central operational management improves production control and communication to passengers
  • Optimisation of the maintenance programme and well-maintained infrastructure facilities
  • Systems for malfunction diagnosis, which reduce operational malfunctions
  • Optimisation of the incident management with multi-functional, mobile service teams

High punctuality

    • Long-distance passenger traffic: 87.7
    • Local passenger traffic: 96.4
    • Overall passenger traffic: 95.9
    • Freight haulage: 70.9
  • Punctuality 2016 from the viewpoint of the infrastructure operator in per cent. Threshold values: passenger traffic 5 minutes, freight haulage 15 minutes
