 Public Performance Measure (PPM)

The Public Performance Measure (PPM) combines figures for punctuality and reliability into a single performance record. It covers all scheduled passenger services, seven days a week and measures the arrival punctuality of individual trains at their destination against their planned timetable (within 10 minutes for all FTPE services). 
Services that are cancelled or fail to operate their entire route, calling at every station, count as a PPM failure. 

"Punctuality" is defined as the number of trains arriving within 10 minutes of the advertised time expressed as a percentage of the number of trains that ran.

"Reliability" is defined as the number of trains that run without being cancelled expressed as a percentage of the number of trains scheduled to run.
