Commuters who take the train in Sunbury and the Macedon Ranges might have noticed an improvement in the services last month.
In the month of August both V/Line and Metro trains took a step up with their reliability and punctuality compared to previous months, and increased the number of services.
V/Line delivered 98.4 per cent of Bendigo’s scheduled services – the most it has all year, exceeding the yearly average of 97 per cent.
The number of Bendigo trains that were on time was also the highest all winter, at 86 per cent, compared to the yearly average of 84.7 per cent.
Malmsbury, Macedon, Riddells Creek and Clarkefield stations gained 27 new train services as of August 27, including nine extra services on the weekend, which increased the frequency of daytime weekend trains from about 90 to 60 minutes.
Across the tracks on Sunbury’s Metro line, 10 new weekly peak services were also added to the Sunbury timetable from August 27.
The number of scheduled trains that were delivered reached 99 per cent, up from July’s 97.7 per cent.
But while the number of trains that were on time improved to 89.6 per cent, up from July’s 88.7 per cent, the line’s overall punctuality has declined.
The yearly average is 90.7 per cent, and this time last year commuters were experiencing 92.4 per cent of trains on time.
Last week the state government granted Metro a new contract to continue to operate the metropolitan rail network for another seven years.
