Romanian state-owned passenger trains register total delays of almost 9 years in 2017

The trains ran by the state-owned company CFR Calatori registered total delays of some 4.53 million minutes in 2017, which translates into around 8.6 years, according to data from the company cited by local Profit.ro.

The total delays registered in 2017 were slightly higher than those reported the year before, of some 4.47 million minutes. In 2015 and 2014, the CFR Calatori trains had total delays of 2.71 million minutes and 2.25 million minutes, respectively.

In November last year, the transport minister at that time Felix Stroe said the trains ran by the state-owned company CFR Calatori registered delays of 12,500 minutes per day, on average, in the first nine months of 2017. According to him, most of the delays are caused by CFR Infrastuctura, the company that deals with the management of railway infrastructure.
