Across the 3rd quarter the punctuality factor at arrival was comparable. In July it reached the level of 92.18%, in August - 92.47% and in September - 91.98%.
- Summertime is a period of increased railway traffic. Passenger carriers kept the punctuality on an even level in July and August, mending the situation that had arisen in June. A noticable rise in cancelled trains in the 3rd quarter was mostly the result of rolling stock malfunctions - mentions Mr. Ignacy Góra, Sc. D., President of the Office of Rail Transport.
Among all the delayed trains in the 3rd quarter 64.9% of the trains were the ones which delay did not exceed 5 minutes and 59 seconds (63.6 thousand trains). Less than 33% were the trains, which arrived at their destinations with a delay exceeding 6 minutes, but not bigger than 59 minutes and 59 seconds (32.3 thousand trains). An average delay time of the first group of trains amounted to 21 minutes and 26 seconds in the 3rd quarter.
The number of cancellations in July, August and September amounted to 1.232, 1.362 and 1.068 trains respectively. As in June of this year such high number of cancelled trains was the result of rolling stock malfunctions - mostly affecting the regional connections.
