Extra services for the Inner West light rail
Passengers using the L1 Dulwich Hill light rail are set to enjoy a more frequent service during inter- peak times and on weekends, with additional services beginning from Monday 19 June.
The changes will add more than 100 light rail services each week to the L1 Dulwich Hill Line.
The additional services come as more passengers travel outside of traditional peak times, giving them more options when planning their trip.
On weekdays between 10am and 3pm, services will increase from a 15-minute frequency to a 10- minute frequency. This will greatly increase passenger capacity, as well as decreasing waiting times.
Other changes include weekend mornings, where services will increase from a 15-minute frequency to a 10-minute frequency between 9am and 11am, where they continue into the evening.
On Saturdays, the 10-minute frequency during the day has been extended to 9pm, which gives passengers a light rail service every 10 minutes between 9am and 9pm.
Since weekday peak services were increased to an 8-minute frequency in December 2022, the additional off-peak and weekend services now mean the L1 light rail will operate to at least a 10- minute frequency during the daytime across the week:
From 7am to 7pm weekdays, from 9am to 9pm on Saturdays and from 9am to 7pm on Sundays.

Minister for Transport Jo Haylen said:
“It’s clear that the community in the Inner West loves using the light rail, and I’m excited we’re able to offer more frequent services to those passengers."
“The Inner West community are the big winners here, with over 100 extra services to the L1 Dulwich Hill Line every week."
“The L1 line functions as the transport spine of the whole Inner West. It’s a vital alternative mode that gets hundreds of students to local schools every day and connects the Inner West to the employment hubs of Pyrmont, Ultimo, Haymarket and the CBD."
“The Minns Labor Government is committed to providing a world-class public transport system to service all communities, and this is just one of many steps towards seeing that realised.”
Transport for NSW A/Chief Operations Officer Mark Hutchings said:
“We are thrilled to be able to offer a more frequent service to passengers travelling on weekends and during inter-peak times."
“These additional services will allow us to offer passengers more options when travelling between the Inner West and the CBD, whether it be for work or recreation.”
