Sydney’s new light rail opens 14 December

On Saturday 14 December, Sydney’s new light rail will start running passenger services on the L2 Randwick line, from Circular Quay to Randwick.

The new light rail will run fare free on the first weekend with the first services starting around 11am Saturday 14 morning. The fare free weekend (Saturday 14 and Sunday 15 December) only applies to the L2 Randwick line, not the existing L1 Inner West line or other public transport services.

On weekdays, frequent services will run approximately every four to eight minutes between Circular Quay and Central, and every eight to twelve minutes between Central and Randwick, from 7am to 7pm as we bed in services over the next six months.

This first weekend of passenger services will be busy so you are advised to expect queues as well as bring sun protection and water. Based on other opening events we’ve estimated when the busiest times over the weekend will be below, so plan ahead and try to avoid busier times in the late morning and lunchtime period.
