DSB is looking for new ways to improve its punctuality

From next year, the journey time between Copenhagen Central Station and Helsingør will increase by nine minutes for regional trains and six minutes for driving during rush hour.

The trains take slightly longer at four stations – Rungsted Kyst, Vedbæk, Skodsborg and Klampenborg – explained DSB.

The rail operator also confirmed that there will be fewer trains operating every hour along the Coastal Line in a bid to improve punctuality.

Still inadequate
“Traffic on the Coastal Railway is very different from in Sweden. If two trains are running in opposite directions on the same line, then one train must wait. So it causes delays,” explained Tony Bispeskov, head of communications at DSB TV2 Cosmopol.

“Last year, 74 percent of customers arrived on time, but we would like to see that number increase.”

The rate has improved, rising to 81.1 percent this year, but it is still not good enough for DSB, which promises its commuters compensation if their punctuality is below 87.4 percent.
