c2c Named UK’s Most Punctual Rail Operator for May

The award-winning train operator that runs services between London Fenchurch Street and Shoeburyness achieved more than 96% in the Public Performance Measure (PPM) figures, the latest set of which have just been published by Network Rail.

That makes c2c the best performing out of the 23 train operating companies in the UK – a position it last held in March 2016.

The PPM is the measure of punctuality that shows the percentage of trains which arrive at their destination station within 4 minutes 59 seconds of advertised time. It combines figures for punctuality and reliability into a single performance measure, and is the industry standard measurement of performance. The national PPM is 91.2%.
