CHILTERN Rail­ways is on track to re­tain top spot in the coun­try when it comes to punc­tu­al­ity, ac­cord­ing to the lat­est statis­tics re­leased by Net­work Rail.

Of­fi­cial rail in­dus­try fig­ures showed 85.2 per cent of its trains ar­rived within a minute of their sched­uled time in the 12 months to Septem­ber, com­pared with the na­tional av­er­age of 65.1.

Chiltern came out on top when the last com­plete set of fig­ures were re­leased, for the fi­nan­cial year to April.

When it comes to per­for­mance, which com­bines punc­tu­al­ity and re­li­a­bil­ity, Chiltern is cur­rently fourth with 94.8 per cent for the 12 months to Septem­ber. The na­tional av­er­age is 89.5.

We take punc­tu­al­ity very se­ri­ously and our team works hard to make sure we give our pas­sen­gers the best travel ex­pe­ri­ence pos­si­ble.”
