Target: Peak period public transport travel times on core routes continuously improves.

This figure shows results for bus travel time on core routes during peak AM and PM hours. Since 2014 this data collection has used electronic data and is a substantial change to reporting from previous years. Early indications show a downward trend in AM or PM peak travel times over the past five years.  The RLTP target is for a reduction in travel times to 2025.

Target: Peak period bus travel time variability along core routes continuously improves.

As above the reporting of this indicator has changed. This figure examines average lateness to represent variability of bus times on core routes. Five year trend show some upward trend in variability in morning peak and the afternoon peak toward the RLTP target.

Target: Rail service punctuality (trains arriving at final destination within 5 minutes of scheduled arrival time) increases to at least 96%.

Percentage of rail services arriving or departing on time (2016-2019).

In 2016 the methodology for measuring rail service punctuality was broadened to include all key stations, previously it was just Wellington railway station. In 2018/19 punctuality is 88%. The RLTP target remains the same: at least 96% rail service punctuality. Under the previous methodology the RLTP target of 96% punctuality was reached in 2017.
