News "Real" – get the facts on the Transport timetable

When a news story breaks, we want you to get the real facts straight from the source.

In response to a media story related to our planning for the November 2017 timetable, we’d like you to be armed with 5 key facts straight from the source.

So what’s the actual story?

  1. Delivering a new timetable is a complex task, so it makes sense to have a number of checks and balances in place, which included a report from an independent third party.

  2. The report is now outdated and was written about an early draft of the timetable which went through nine further drafts before final implementation.

  3. While we didn’t agree with everything the report said, it helped us identify a number of actions that were closed out before the timetable was implemented.

  4. The November 2017 start date was seen as the best option for customers, who needed more services as a result of unprecedented demand.

  5. There were no issues that stopped Transport for NSW and Sydney Trains working together effectively. In fact, all parties including the NSW Government worked cohesively in delivering the timetable and that joint effort continues today.
