Indikatorer för ökad punktlighet på järnväg: slutrapport inom projektet Nypunkt


Punctuality is a very important issue for the railway in order to increase passenger and transport buyer satisfaction and be competitive in relation to other modes of transport. To obtain punctuality is however a complex task which includes cooperation between different organisations such as infrastructure managers and train operators. Such a cooperation exists in Sweden and is called TTT (Together for Trains on Time). TTT has divided the work concerning increased railway punctuality in Sweden into eight so called effect areas: Infrastructure, Vehicle, Trespassing, Traffic and resource planning, Traffic management, Trackwork, Departure time and nodes and From abroad. In this report, an analysis of the work in TTT is conducted which identifies synergies in-between the effect areas and reports on current status for the punctuality work in each effect area. Furthermore, twelve main indicators for improved railway punctuality are identified in this report. The purpose of these indicators is to assist TTT in monitoring the punctuality improvement work. The new indicators cover both the most important issues from the effect areas and aspects of special importance to travellers such as very long delays and cancelled trains.
