MTA LIRR achieves record on-time performance

Posted on January 8, 2009

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) achieved a 95.14 percent on-time performance (OTP) in 2008, breaking 2007’s record setting 94.07 percent by a full percentage point.

The 95.14 percent OTP is the best since modern record keeping began in 1979. The LIRR reached the 95.14 percent milestone in 2008 while operating 245,933 trains – 1,368 more trains than last year.

A train is considered on time if it reaches its final destination within 5 minutes and 59 seconds of its scheduled arrival time. The standard measure, used throughout the commuter rail industry, was adopted by the LIRR in 1979.
