Pacific Surfliner On-Time Performance

We know that on-time performance is an important ingredient in fulfilling Amtrak's quest for providing quality customer service. As many of you know, the tracks Amtrak trains travel outside of the Northeast Corridor are owned by various freight railroads. We offer this information as an opportunity for you to follow along as we work with those railroads on the path to improvement and to assist you in planning your trip.
