Punctuality in long distance and commuter traffic

The Finnish Transport Agency is actively measuring train punctuality and the performance progress. By measuring train punctuality, action can be taken to address the right issues. The most recent train punctuality statistics are published on this page.

Punctuality thresholds

Long distance passenger train is considered punctual if it is at most 5 minutes behind schedule. A commuter train is considered punctual if it is less than 3 minutes behind schedule.

(The punctuality data below has been updated on 13th September 2017. In case data from the previous month is not displayed, please refresh the page or restart the browser.)

Punctuality in long distance passenger traffic

 

Punctuality in long distance passenger traffic is presented as a percentage of trains that have arrived at their final destination at most 5 minutes behind schedule.

 

Punctuality in commuter traffic

 

Punctuality in commuter traffic is presented as a percentage of the Helsinki region commuter trains that have departed from their station of departure and arrived at their final destination less than 3 minutes behind schedule.

 

Punctuality of urban lines

Punctuality of urban lines is the punctuality of Helsinki region commuter trains that run on separate urban lines (lines I, K, N, A and M). Punctuality is presented as a percentage of trains that have departed from their station of departure and arrived at their final destination less than 3 minutes behind schedule.

 

Delays due to infrastructure management in long distance traffic

Delays due to infrastructure management is presented as a percentage of trains that have been delayed due to rail infrastructure malfunctions and operations, for example malfunction of safety device, signaling or electrification or rail maintenance work.

 

Proportion of infrastructure related delays of all the delays

 

Proportion of infrastructure related delays is presented as the share of trains delayed due to infrastructure related reasons of all the delayed trains.

 

The trains cancelled due to the Locomotive Drivers’ Union strike 14–15 August 2017 have been classified as delayed trains in the punctuality figures for rail passenger traffic. If these cancelled train had been left unregistered, the punctuality rate of August would have been 81.9% for long-distance traffic, 94.1% for commuter traffic and 95.6% for urban railway lines. The share of delayed long-distance trains due to railway maintenance would have been 10.2%.
 
Correspondingly, in March 2016, the punctuality rate of long-distance trains would have been 92.5%, if the long-distance trains cancelled due to the conductors’ strike had not been registered.
