Sydney Trains owes Bankstown Line commuters an explanation!

With significant cuts to train services announced for the Bankstown Line, Sydney Trains must clarify its commitment to commuters in the affected areas. Restore Inner West Line has asked Howard Collins about the future of the Bankstown Line especially for non-Metro stations.

Dear Mr Collins

Bankstown Line commuters from Berala to Carramar, Birrong and Yagoona will lose all direct City services with the Sydney Metro Southwest.

  • What plans does Sydney Trains have to ensure that travel times do not increase from non-Metro Bankstown Line stations?

Currently Bankstown Line stations west from Berala to Carramar only have 2 trains per hour and passengers are forced to interchange at Birrong.

  • Will Sydney Trains reinstate the City to Liverpool via Regents Park and City to Bankstown via Regents Park service given that the Bankstown Line will be cut in half by the Metro?
  • Will Sydney Trains at the very least operate a Lidcombe to Cabramatta via Regents Park/Sefton train service in light of the Metro at Bankstown?
  • Will there also be an increase in the frequency of Bankstown Line trains for non-Metro stations?

Thank you

Restore Inner West Line
