Five Metro rail lines fail punctuality targets despite COVID-19

Five Metro rail lines have failed the Government’s punctuality performance targets despite Stage 2 and 3 COVID-19 restrictions and the effective closure of large sections of the Victorian economy.

For the first time in years, the Government has only just met its overall metro punctuality standard, helped by drastically reduced travel numbers.

The daily data shows that punctuality on workdays failed to meet required standards until Stage 2 and 3 restrictions were introduced causing the collapse in patronage.

It seems the only way Labor can meet Victoria’s required punctuality targets is with limited passengers and almost empty trains.
