Summary 8-12 May

From now I'll continue to report the overall performance since starting this, but I'll also include a graph showing performance trends. I've tried to strike a balance between ease of maintenance and showing something meaningful.

The graph reflects the trend by showing the percentages of on time, late or very late/cancelled trains at the end of the week. I've chosen to show the prior six weeks, as week-by-week cannot really show a trend - it's too variable, especially if I'm going to Perth more often (I tend to be lately). This is pretty arbitrary, but it feels about right to me.

So the cumulative stats show that we still have 61% on time, 23% a little late and 16% very late or cancelled. The trend shows a positive peak in November, dropping quickly into January then steadily climbing again until fairly recently. Reliability seems to have been declining a little since.

While we're on the subject of reliability, it seems Mr Bracks is about to pay somebody $5,000,000 to find the solution to Melbourne's traffic congestion. Tell you what Bracksie, give me 10% of that and I'll give you the answer... FIX OUR PUBLIC TRANSPORT!

Well, wouldn't that be a bigger waste.

Spend $250,000 just for Mr Whinger to say: FIX OUR PUBLIC TRANSPORT!

How, bloody, obvious.

'How' this network is stuffed up, and 'how' we're going to fix is what we need to figure out (and spend on)

The government sees fit to allocate such money to 'worthy' cause.

Your math skills are lacking as badly as your English skills you f*cking cheesed!ck. 10% of 5mill is not 250k you f*cking loser.

Well, if it isn't Mr cheesedi** and Mr Imitation Met. What an unlikely duo.

I can accept I am mistaken, the correct value is: $500,000.

And anyway, giving that price to Mr Whinger just to obviously point out, fixing our public transport...

The bigger waste.

Uh Chris, hello Chris, you with us? That was not a serious offer there mate.

As an aside, Bracks, Batchelor and the other Bs are barely looking at PT, it's all about roads. That was my point... we're on the same side again Chris, just accept it!

And cheesedick guy - I'm sure Chris is big enough to look after himself, but can you drop the insults and language down a couple of notches? I avoid deleting comments unless really necessary - yours are getting close.

Seems, harry was not taught proper English nor spelling.

In another view, not how again, one person is drawn to represent a company/entity made of hundreds of people.

In addition;

Yes, Mr Whinger, im completely aware that is wasn't serious., as i also state "How, bloody, obvious."

We are on the damn 'same side.' It's just utterly blown out of proportion from reality.
