Transport for NSW has confirmed that public transport across the Greater Sydney area will mostly operate to a dynamic weekday timetable from Monday 2 August 2021. This is a significant increase to the Sunday timetables that have been in force since 19 July, and reflect the expected additional travel demand as some restrictions regarding Construction work are lifted from today.
These ‘dynamic’ timetables will not be regular weekday timetables. Instead, they will provide the general span of service that is usually seen on a weekday with changes to frequency based on the changed demand during the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown in Greater Sydney. This will mean extra services in the early morning and early afternoon, with reduced levels of service at the height of peak, particularly on AM/PM City Express services.
Changes by mode are listed below;
Most services will operate to a weekday school holiday timetable. There will be reduced frequencies on AM/PM City Express services. Dedicated school services will operate where required.
Services will operate hourly on all lines.
L1 Dulwich Hill Line services will operate to a normal weekday timetable. L2 Randwick Line services will operate to a Sunday timetable with additional services in the early morning and early afternoon. L3 Kingsford Line services will operate to a Sunday timetable.
Services will run every 10 minutes during peak periods and every 20 minutes at other times.
Sydney Trains services will mostly operate to a weekday timetable. There will be reduced services in the AM and PM peak. Extra services will operate in the early morning.
NSW Trainlink Intercity services will mostly operate to a weekday timetable. There will be reduced services in the AM and PM peak.
NSW TrainLink Regional services operate to a weekday timetable for Regional, Hunter, Bathurst, Southern Highland lines. Services to Grafton have been cancelled.
Despite the increase in service, Transport for NSW is still urging all residents to stay home whilst the lockdown under COVID-19 Public Health Order continues.
