Cover thy heads, mortals! Repent! Repent! That rumbling sound you hear drawing near is the four horsemen! For the apocalypse is upon us! The signs are all here, starting with the fact that Swiss trains only had an 87.5% on-time rate in 2013.
The Swiss train system is so well-known for its punctuality that Apple stole its clock design for use on the iPhone. That's what we in the business call "a rep to keep." SBB, the Swiss national railway, is most certainly not keeping its rep, as it missed targets and delivered only slightly less than nine out of ten passengers less than three minutes within their scheduled arrival time, according to Le Matin.
