The Massachusetts Bay Commuter Rail Company said the Needham line had a 96.9 percent contractual on-time performance rate in June.
The MBCR said it has a contractually stipulated required goal of 95 percent.
The MBCR said in a press release that "accounting for factors within MBCR's control the Needham line has exceeded its contractual OTP (on-time performance) goal of 95 percent in every month in 2012."
For the year, the Needham line has been on time 96.8 percent of the time and reached its highest rate of 98.2 percent in February.
