Two line graphs illustrate the information about how many people travel by train and the proportion of
trainsarriving punctually in Sydney between 1995 and 2004.
Overall, it is apparent that there was an upward trend in the figure for commuters taking
trainsduring the trips, whilst the punctuality rate of
thistype of public transportation fluctuated over the period shown, reaching the lowest point in 2004. As for the number of train passengers, a slight increment can be seen from 1995 to 1999, with the figure rising from 250
millionto approximately 265
million. Afterwards, the equivalent figure increased remarkably during the following two years, peaking at 300
However, it was followed by a noticeable plunge, as the number of people who took
trainswhen travelling fell to 280
millionin 2002 and had continued to decrease by a negligible amount since
then. Turning to the proportion of
trainsthat arrived on time, we can witness a significant fluctuation throughout the years 1995 and 2003, when the punctuality rate waved between 86% to about 93%.
Additionally, more striking is that an increasing number of
trainsarrived at their destinations late from 2003 to 2004, since the percentage of punctual arrivals plunged dramatically from 92% to less than 75%.
