Please note:

  • If you are travelling between Central Station, Darling Harbour, Pyrmont and Ultimo, walking might be an alternative transport option.
  • L1 Dulwich Hill Line light rail services are not equipped with real-time yet: the next service arrival times displayed on the information displays at stops, on Trip Planner or on transport apps are approximate.
  • Due to the use of new L2 and L3 light rail vehicles and historical L1 light rail vehicles operating on the L1 Dulwich Hill Line, there will be some variations in the travelling experience. It includes information displays onboard unable to automatically list the next stops. For information on stopping patterns, refer to the line diagrams displayed onboard all light rail services.
  • Overnight light rail services between Central Grand Concourse and The Star continue to be suspended until further notice.

It’s important we all play our part to stay safe:

As L1 light rail service frequency is increasing, all customers must remember safe behaviours should always be followed.​

  • Stay alert and be aware of your surroundings.
  • Always use designated crossings and avoid distractions like mobile phone or headsets.
  • Once on the platform, wait for others to get off before you board, and stand clear of doors closings.
  • If you require assistance to board, wait in the wheelchair boarding zone.
  • Take extra care and mind the gap.
  • Once on board, hold on at all times: light rail vehicles might have to break at short notice to avoid an immediate hazard, even in the dedicated corridor section.
  • If you need the wheelchair ramp at the next stop, let the driver know by pressing the blue button with an accessible symbol

Allow extra travel time and plan ahead using the Trip Planner or check travel alerts to see if your travel is affected, or to find alternative transport options.
