Additional bus services have contributed to improved performance results for public transport operators in Victoria.

Minister for Public Transport Terry Mulder says the March 2014 performance results demonstrate the investment in the network is delivering more reliable and on-time services for customers.

"For the 23rd consecutive month, Metro has achieved punctuality above 90 per cent, with 92.2 per cent of services delivered on time," he says.

"The record investment we are making in public transport has seen Metro’s punctuality performance increase from 81 per cent in March 2010, to more than 92 per cent in just four years.

"Even better results have been achieved on a line by line basis, with punctuality on the Pakenham line increasing 24 percentage points, from just 63 per cent in March 2010, to 87 per cent in March 2014."

Similar results have also been achieved on the Frankston line, up 20 percentage points to 88 per cent, and the Werribee line, up 19 percentage points to 89 per cent.

Yarra Trams also achieved record performance results in March 2014, while V/Line did not meet punctuality and reliability thresholds on some lines.
