Since the commitment to minimise skip – stopping in peak flow was made last November, 0.62% of the services provided were affected. (figures relate to period 9 16-17 to period 6 17-18 2017) The percentage of services starting their journey between (a) 7.00 and 9.00 is 12.4% and (b) 4.00 and 6.00 is 12.7%
