More Trains More Services
More people are using trains every day and demand is set to grow even further with customer numbers forecast to increase by 21 per cent by 2021. We need to do something now to ensure we can continue to meet customer demand.
Hundreds of extra services across the network.
New trains to the suburban network that will spend less time in maintenance and more time on the tracks.
Upgraded rail infrastructure allowing our complex network to operate at an even greater capacity, including better signalling systems, power supply upgrades and station improvements.
It’s all part of the NSW Government's $1.5 billion More Trains, More Services program.
