Latest rail figures reveal Transport for Wales performance improvements in 2024

Transport for Wales

Transport for Wales has released figures showing rail performance improvements since the start of this year (2024).

Since January 2024, over 80% of TfW trains have arrived on time or within 3 minutes of their scheduled arrival, with most recent statistics for March indicating that this has now risen to 85% of rail services.

Cancellations across the network for 2024 have also stayed below the annual average 5% target.

These improvements in rail performance across the Wales and Borders network are a result of the £800 million investment TfW is making into brand-new trains.  As more of these new trains are added to the network, rail performance continues to improve through building more resilience and reliability.

Adam Terry, Head of Rail Performance at TfW said:

“Our rail performance figures for 2024 are encouraging and have shown an improvement of how our trains are operating on our network and we’re hitting our targets.

“Nearly fifty percent of our train fleet has been replaced with newer trains as part of our transformation programme and as we continue to add more brand-new trains to our network we expect to see continued improvements.”
