NEW DRAFT TRAIN TIMETABLE SHOULD BE RELEASED FOR PUBLIC CONSULTATION
The new draft CityRail timetable should be released for public consultation so commuters can have their say, Shadow Transport Minister Penny Sharpe said today.
The draft timetable – which is set to be implemented in October – has been circulated within Transport NSW, but commuters have been left in the dark.
There are currently 308 stations on the rail network, and some 2800 daily trips between Sydney, the Central Coast, Hunter, Illawarra, Blue Mountains and Goulburn.
“I’m calling on Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian to release the draft train timetable so commuters can provide feedback before it is rolled out,” Ms Sharpe said.
“Commuters have a right to know what the new timetable will mean for them.
