In spite of great challenges, there was a significant improvement in punctuality in rail transport in Germany.
The reason for this is our excellent crisis management. Reducing services to a robust basic level had a positive effect on operating performance during the Covid-19 restrictions and took the pressure off particularly busy lines. In addition, the lower number of passengers meant that there were fewer delays due to excessive stopping times.
