Notes:
¹ On time is defined as arriving at the final destination within five minutes of the planned timetable for London and South East, Regional and Scotland operators, or within ten minutes for the Long Distance operators. A higher score is better. The moving annual average (MAA) reflects the proportion of trains on time in the past 12 months. Train services arriving into London termini between 07:00 and 09:59 in the morning and departing London termini between 16:00 and 18:59 in the evening are classified as peak services.
On 1 April 2016, services between Manchester Airport and Blackpool North/Barrow-in-Furness and between Oxenholme and Windermere were transferred from TransPennine Express to Northern. In doing so, these services moved from the Long Distance sector (for which the threshold for meeting PPM is ten minutes) to the Regional sector (for which the threshold is five minutes). The National, Long Distance, and Regional and Scotland historical data have not been adjusted to reflect this reconfiguration.
