ScotRail has become the best performing large train operator in the UK, according to new figures. The train operator's moving annual average (MAA) - measuring reliability and punctuality - hit 90.9% for the year to August 19. The result is ahead of the improvement plan target of 90.5% and higher than the remaining four large train operators, Northern, Southeastern, South West Trains and Govia Thameslink Railway. ScotRail ranks seventh out of 23 train operating firms in the UK in the Network Rail figures, which averaged 88.3% MAA nationwide.
The firm's punctuality and reliability has improved across the network.
