The first Sydney CBD light rail service will start at 11am on Saturday 14 December 2019 and run between Circular Quay and Randwick until 1am. The service will be fare-free for customers during the opening weekend.

After the opening weekend, the service will run daily between 5am to 1am. During peak hours, services will run every 4 to 8 minutes between Circular Quay and Central, and every 8 to 12 minutes between Central and Randwick.

The L2 Randwick Line includes 14 stops between Circular Quay and Randwick. The service will run through the CBD, Central, Surry Hills, Moore Park and UNSW and end at the Randwick Hospitals Campus on High Street, Randwick.

Minister for Transport Andrew Constance said it’s more important than ever for the community to pay attention to safety messages around trams.

“We have launched multiple safety campaigns telling people to stay safe around light rail. We need pedestrians to keep their heads up and drivers to stay out of the tram corridor and not queue across intersections,” Mr Constance said.

In March 2020, the L3 Kingsford Line will open, adding five more stops between Moore Park and Kingsford at Nine Ways.
