Trängsel på spåren?: fördelning av tåglägen i tågplanerna 2014–2016

In this study, VTI examined the allocation of Swedish Transport Administration timetables 2014-2016 where we compare rail companies filed applications for train paths – as they were presented at the deadline for applications in spring for the coming timetable – with granted train paths in the annual timetable published in the autumn. The main result is that both freight and passenger companies receive roughly the same number of paths that were requested. VTI also examined what we call time offsets, i.e. adjustments in departure, arrival and driving times in the granted paths compared to the paths that were applied for. The time offsets are calculated for departure time, driving time and the arrival time. The time offsets can thus only be calculated for train paths that were both applied for and granted. This analysis shows that about 97 percent of passenger trains depart according to the original timetable during these years. For freight trains the corresponding data, unfortunately, has not been available and the corresponding analysis was not possible.
