SELECTED ON-TIME PERFORMANCE 12/8/17 THROUGH 1/6/18

Results for this period are:

TOTAL TRAINS = 1217

ON TIME = 386 (32%)

LATE = 831 (68%)

AVERAGE DELAY = 1' 22"

Of the late trains:
39% were 29" or less late;
16% were 30" to 59" late; 20% were 1' to 2' late;
24% were more than 2' late; and
1% had no arrival time shown.

BY ROUTE, WITH ON-TIME % AND AVERAGE DELAY:

CAPITOL LIMITED
#29 - 32% - 1' 44"
#30 - 21% - 1' 36"

CARDINAL (WAS)
#51 - 38% - 1' 09"
#50 - 31% - 3' 41"

PENNSYLVANIAN
#43 - 47% - 28"
#42 - 37% - 31"

LAKE SHORE LIMITED
#49 - 3% - 2' 35"
#48 - 20% - 2' 55"

LAKE SHORE LIMITED (BOSTON / ALBANY)
#449 - 46% - 54"
#448 - 0% - 3' 03"

CITY OF NEW ORLEANS
#59 - 27% - 1' 33"
#58 - 13% - 1' 38"

CRESCENT (WAS)
#19 - 3% - 2' 47"
#20 - 10% - 2' 01"

DETROIT CORRIDOR
(W) - 30% - 46"
(E) - 34% - 48"

ST. LOUIS CORRIDOR
(W) - 37% - 46"
(E) - 46% - 1' 05"

BUFFALO CORRIDOR
(W) - 2% - 1' 20"
(E) - 34% - 1' 29"

KANSAS CITY CORRIDOR
(W) - 73% - 42"
(E) - 55% - 27"

Less than a full complement of trains was reviewed in this period due to disruptions caused by severe weather and by accidents on various routes.

Of the late trains, 55% were less than 1' 00" late and 45% were more than 1' 00" late. At least 197 trains were more than 2' 00" late with 56 exceeding 4' 00".

During the last 10 days of this period, 81 of the late trains departed their initial terminals too late to permit an on-time arrival, and many of these had initial terminal delays of 3' 00" to 9' 00".

While the weather conditions were unquestionably severe, such performance hardly gives credence to the idea of Amtrak being a dependable all-weather form of transportation.

By comparison, the prior periods of 2 preceding years had results of:
OT = 46% and 39%
Avg. Delays = 37% and 53"
Less than 1' 00" late = 78% and 70%
More than 2' 00" late = 4% and 11%

Better results due in part to milder weather, better preparation, and ??????

Note the Crescent is at the bottom of on time especially train #19.. 3% means one train in a 30 day period on time..
