NSW Transport Timetable Changes Cause Major Shifts For Commuters

Today marks the first day of the new changes to New South Wales’ transport timetables.

Like all changes, there are winners and losers to come out of this update.

With this major overhaul said to be the biggest change to transport Sydney has ever seen in one go, according to Premier Gladys Berejiklian, you bet people have had something to say about it.

"If you haven't used public transport today, the timetables obviously kick in today but tomorrow will be the real test. Please make sure you look up the app or the information we have so that you're not caught out if your service has changed,” the Premier advised.

"This is a huge shift in the way in which people can move around our greater city… chances are in more than two-thirds of our stations, you'll cut your waiting times by half."

8,600 extra weekly services will be operating across all transport networks, however, the Opposition has picked up on a number of flaws.

"The Blue Mountains' trains no longer stop at Redfern, we know that the western line for instance, from Auburn to Central, will take 11 minutes longer," says Opposition transport spokeswoman Jodi McKay.

"We know that if you're in south-west Sydney, you're going to have to change trains at Glenfield for the first time to get to Parramatta and Blacktown."

We’re going to take a guess and say these aren’t the only changes set to blindside commuters.

Check your lines here now and let us know in our Facebook comments if the changes have benefited your or is you’re less than impressed.

If you're still confused about how to get around, tomorrow staff in pink 'ASK ME' t-shirts will be scattered across train stations to help guide commuters where to go.
