Over the last six periods (that is, Period 3-Period 8 inclusive) the percentage of trains which have skip-stopped at Coatbridge Sunnyside is 1 percent.
The Scottish Government does not hold detailed information as to how many peak and off-peak train services have skipped calling at Coatbridge Sunnyside in each of the last six months, and broken down by reason.
A train that runs skip-stop results in a part-cancellation; therefore, ScotRail provide Transport Scotland with the information at Sector level and these are monitored against the specified benchmarks contained in the Franchise Agreement.
