New services and timetable changes

Posted: Monday 11 August 2008

Timetable changes will be made to some weekday services from Monday, 18 August 2008.

We are introducing two new weekday services on the North Shore and Western lines to address the growing patronage on the CityRail network.

Some weekday departure times on the North Shore, Western and Northern lines will also change by a few minutes and we are adding additional carriages to some services to increase capacity.

These changes are part of CityRail's long term plan to reduce crowding and improve reliability.

North Shore Line

  • A new peak hour train service will depart Hornsby at 5.21pm, Central at 6.14pm, Parramatta at 6.41pm and will arrive at Penrith at 7.15pm.
  • 5.04pm Hornsby to Parramatta service will now depart one minute earlier than currently timetabled and extra carriages will be added to increase capacity.
  • 5.11pm Hornsby to Parramatta service will have extra carriages added to increase capacity.
  • 5.19pm Lindfield to Strathfield service will now depart two minutes earlier than currently timetabled.

Western Line

  • A new fast peak hour train service will depart Chatswood at 5.45pm, Central at 6.14pm and will terminate at Penrith at 7.15pm.
  • 5.27pm Chatswood to Blacktown service, departing Central at 5.55pm, will now depart up to one minute earlier than currently timetabled and extra carriages will be added to increase capacity.
  • 6.02pm Central to Penrith service will have extra carriages added to increase capacity.

Northern Line

Online timetables will be updated to reflect the new times from Monday 18 August 2008.
