Less than 90% of national passenger trains were punctual during the month of May, according to figures published Wednesday on the website of the rail network manager Infrabel.
As reported by Belga News Agency, this is the second time this year that the figures have fallen below 90%. Trains arrived in Brussels or their arrival station on time or with a delay of up to six minutes in 89.7% of cases.
- Over 90% of SNCB trains arrive on time, but cancellations up
- Belgian train punctuality drops below 90%
The figures, therefore, are falling compared to May 2021 when punctuality was 94.3% across the Belgian rail network.
There is also an increase in the percentage of trains canceled compared to May 2021. There were 3,581 trains totally or partially canceled in May 2022, or 3.7% of the network compared to only 2.0% a year earlier.
