Train punctuality for Scotrail services running to and from stations in the Southside is at its best level in almost two years, according to latest figures.

Improved performance on South Glasgow services saw 95.8 per cent of trains meet the rail industry standard public performance measure (PPM) for the four-week period from June 23 to July 20.

That’s the best performance for services in the area since September 2017.

To meet the PPM, trains must arrive at their destination within 4 minutes and 59 seconds of their timetabled arrival time, having called at all scheduled stations.

Across Scotland, 90.7 per cent of ScotRail trains met the PPM, the best performance for 10 months.

Alex Hynes, Managing Director of Scotland’s Railway, said: “This latest period of performance is another sign of the fantastic progress we are making in delivering for our customers, and all across the country there are improvements thanks to the hard work of everyone on Scotland’s Railway.

“The unprecedented investment in upgrading the infrastructure, and introducing new and upgraded trains, is delivering a consistent level of performance that’s providing our customers with the service they expect and deserve.”
