NOTES: Short distance includes all Amtrak Northeast Corridor and Empire Service (New York State) trains. Amtrak provides on-time performance data in percentages. Amtrak revised its methodology for collecting and calculating on-time performance data in 2001. This resulted in minor changes in short-distance, long-distance, and system on-time performance percentages starting in 2001 compared with previous years.
