TfL boasts record reliability

Listen to this article

Transport for London (TfL) is on course to post record Tube reliability figures.

Figures collected between January and March have shown that London Underground is operating 97.5 per cent of scheduled services, with 187 million passenger journeys made on the network in the first three months of 2013.

During the period, TfL has also implemented the new Victoria Line timetable, boosting services on the line from 27 to 33 trains an hour.

TfL has said “reliability of services is at record levels, and is poised to smash last year’s best ever performance”.

Mike Brown, managing director of London Underground and Rail, said: “Building reliability into our services is at the core of everything we are doing, and customers are seeing this in improved journeys.

“But we cannot be complacent. We must continue to invest to keep pace with the relentless demand placed on the Tube, which enables the capital to function as the engine room of the UK economy.”
