NEWARK - New Jersey Transit says its trains achieved record on-time performance in 2012.

The agency says its trains were on time 96.4 percent of the time even though it was operating nearly 23 percent more trains than the previous record year of 1995. That was when trains had an on-time performance score of 96.2 percent.

NJ Transit attributes the performance to its Scorecard initiative in which passengers rate the railroad.

NJ Transit is the second largest transit system in the U.S. with 164 rail stations, 61 light rail stations and more than 19,000 bus stops. The report highlights the celebration of NJ Transit Rail Operation's 30th anniversary of service to the Garden State.
