Geelong's trains have again failed to hit their reliability and punctuality targets, with a performance so poor it makes the federal government's promised Geelong faster rail service seem like an impossible dream.
Figures for June show just under 91 per cent of trains on the local line rain on time, short of the 92 per cent target.
The result is another shocking indictment of V/Line's sub-standard performance, given that the rail operator considers trains to be "on time" even when they arrive up to six minutes behind schedule.
However, V/Line says the punctuality figures are an improvement on May's figure of just 89 per cent.
Just over 95 per cent of trains actually made it onto the rails last month, just below the 96 per cent benchmark.
V/Line says it is trialing measures to help passengers board and disembark from trains more efficiently.
