Sydney’s new light rail opens 14 December from Circular Quay to Randwick

Introducing Sydney’s new light rail, a great way to travel between the city and south eastern suburbs.

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

High frequency services mean you can just turn up and go and additional services will run from Central Chalmers Street Stop for major events to Moore Park and Royal Randwick Racecourse.

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

Together with the existing L1 Dulwich Hill Line, these new lines form an integrated 24.7 kilometre network of high capacity, energy efficient light rail services.

No need for timetables – just turn up and go

Services start from 5am and end at 1am each day, and run more frequently on weekdays between 7am and 7pm with services every 4 to 8 minutes between Circular Quay and Central, and every 8 to 12 minutes between Central and Randwick.

Greater capacity to keep more people moving

High capacity services get you to key locations efficiently and reliably, easing road congestion. At 67-metres long, the light rail can carry up to 450 people at once – that’s up to nine standard bus loads of commuters.
