Punctuality in rail transport in Germany improved despite the increased traffic volume and expansion of the construction program. Particular measures have paid off in this respect, such as the expansion of vehicle capacity and availability, the infrastructure prevention program, the consistent progression of PlanStart activities and the work of the Punctuality Management Center and the Construction Management Center.

To measure punctuality, we compare the target arrival time to the actual time for every train run. We summarize the arrival of trains on schedule or up to a defined maximum delay using a degree of punctuality.
