Working for punctuality every day
VR Group does its very best to ensure passenger and freight trains run punctually and passengers reach their destinations on schedule.
A large number of VR employees work constantly to guarantee the smooth flow of rail traffic. We work every day to maintain and improve punctuality.
Equipment maintenance, incident management, and train service planning are being continuously developed in this respect.
VR Group has acquired and is in the process of acquiring new locomotives and rolling stock, which will improve the reliability of train services even further.
Working together towards even smoother rail traffic
In matters of infrastructure availability, VR Group carries out collaboration work with the Finnish Transport Agency. Local traffic flows are being improved together with Helsinki regional Transport (HSL).
VR passenger services operate around 300 long-distance and almost 800 commuter trains daily. VR Transpoint operates around 360 freight trains each day.
In 2015, local services achieved 92.6% punctuality. 87.2% of all long distance trains were on time. For goods trains the punctuality figure was 93.1%.
