ORR reveals latest figures on passenger rail performance

The Office of Rail and Road (ORR) has today published its latest statistics on passenger rail performance.

The rail regulator’s stats show performance worsened in January to March 2022, but punctuality was still better than before the pandemic.

In the three months, of the 1.64 million trains planned, 72.4% arrived on time, 89.1% arrived within 5 to 10 minutes after the scheduled arrival time and 3.9% of trains were cancelled.

Over half (51.2%) of cancellations were attributed to train operators and around a third (16.6%) were the fault of track or signalling issues.

During the year, there were 6.69 million trains planned in Great Britain, which was up 9.6% compared with the previous year ending March 2021 and down 14.1% compared with the year ending March 2020.
