Sydney Metro

When Stage 2 of the Sydney Metro is complete, the new, fully automated railway will provide turn-up-and-go metro train services between 31 stations along a 66km railway.

Sydney Metro

Sydney Metro is Australia’s biggest public transport project. The Sydney Metro Northwest, which runs between Rouse Hill and Chatswood, opened in May 2019. Stage 2, extending the metro under Sydney Harbour and through the CBD to Bankstown, is expected to open in 2024.

At full operation, trains will run every four minutes in each direction at peak times, with the ability to run up to every two minutes in the future.

Metro stations are accessible for everyone. There are lifts at every station, level access between platforms and trains, and dedicated spaces on trains for people travelling with wheelchairs, luggage and bicycles.

What customers are saying

Communities in Sydney's north west are already beginning to experience the benefits of a fast, reliable metro train system. 

On the first weekday morning of operation, about 21,000 commuters took the Sydney Metro. Most people used their Opal cards to tap off at Chatswood, Macquarie University and Epping.

How the project is tracking

The project is now in the second phase, Sydney Metro City and Southwest. Construction on Metro West, connecting Parramatta to the Sydney CBD, will start in 2020.

The NSW Government has also announced plans to extend the metro to link the new Western Sydney Airport to the rest of the city.
