c2c Remains the UK’s Most Punctual Train Operator

97.0% of c2c’s trains arrived on time during the four weeks to 22nd August, which is an improvement compared to c2c’s record at this time last year. Overall in the last 12 months 97.1% of c2c services arrived on time, compared to the national average of 89.6% punctuality.

c2c Managing Director Julian Drury said: “More trains are arriving on time across the rail industry, and c2c is no exception to this. This is good news for c2c and our passengers, as well as for all of east London and south Essex. A reliable and punctual train service is an essential part of the local infrastructure that helps to deliver strong economic growth, and allows the region to reach its full potential.”

The figures published by Network Rail are the Public Performance Measure, the rail industry’s official standard of punctuality.
