We’ve all been there. You’ve got somewhere to be. You’ve been sure to make it to the station or stop in time, only to be advised that your service is running behind. It’s not a good feeling.

It’s easy to think, ‘I’ve got the worst train line in Melbourne’ or ‘my tram is so slow’, but how does it really stack up when it comes to the rest of the network? The stats from 2019 have been obtained by the Herald Sun, and it’s quite staggering.

When it came to trains, Cranbourne came in at #1 with 5,509 late trains over the year, which is 14.6% of its services for the year.

Trams are even more eye-watering with Route 70 copping a total of 51,041 late trams, which is 26.9% for its timetable’s service. Yikes.
