A Rally for Public Transport will be held on Saturday 20th October 10am - 11am outside Regents Park station.

The rally is supported by Restore Inner West Line (Liverpool via Regents Park), Save T3 Bankstown Line, The Battler, the Sydenham-Bankstown Alliance and other local groups.

20th October is 5 years since the 2013 train timetable which began many cuts to services in the Auburn/Cumberland and Bankstown Council areas.

  • Inner West Line cut at Homebush - removing City to Liverpool/Bankstown via Regents Park services (2013)

  • All express services to City cut from Lidcombe, Auburn, Granville in the peak (2017 timetable)

  • 9 stations west of Bankstown (Berala, Regents Park, Sefton, Chester Hill, Leightonfield, Villawood, Carramar, Birrong, Yagoona) to lose all trains to City once the Sydenham-Bankstown Metro construction starts


Transport for NSW's own "Community/Stakeholder Engagement Plan" lists the removal of the Liverpool via Regents Park train and changes to services for Lidcombe, Auburn, Granville as major issues in the timetable changes.



The themes of the Rally for Public Transport are: Fight back against the Berejiklian government’s attacks on public transport.
  • Restore Inner West Line to Liverpool via Regents Park
  • Save T3 Bankstown Line (No T3 Metro)
  • Fast Trains for Lidcombe and Less Overcrowding

Would no doubt be of interest to RTT_Rules. While there has obviously been a lot of local community agitation, it seems to have slipped under the radar as far as the broader transport community is concerned.  That's surprising, as it affects a significant part of Luke Foley's electorate of Auburn, but I haven't heard much from him about it.

Some years back there was a lot of different brands of butter sold, one of them was one called Foley's Pure Butter, unfortunately the current version in political terms has as much charisma and ability to much as the long gone table version.

While I support this rally, and for me the current mobs intentions with Sydney rail transport is abysmal leaving too many people without any real PT options at all, the old (now) dumbed down turn back farce brought in by Costa's wonder brain at locations that already had, in the main those facilities already in place, now being shown by loss of train services as highlighted in the main post now is going to affect more than ever commuters on the whole of the line from Lidcombe to Cabramatta, and neither side of politics gives a toot.

What does not help is that the premier has her head around the publicity for a horse race on the opera house sails to wit she would like herself and the smug mug transport minister maybe taking grand spots on the sails for their vision of the rail network, which takes into consideration that one day we will be rid of trains, the associated workers and therefore no need to worry about commuters. VIVA NSW.

With the pressure for more services on the western line the T2 and T3 always get shafted. The only way to solve it is a third track pair between strathfield and lidcombe. This way even if the T3 is metrofied to bankstown you can actually separate the T1 from services that could run to bankstown and liverpool via regent's park.

Made out in the media that hundreds would/did attend this event yet footage showed it to be lucky to have been 100.

Being from Melbourne, and a frequent visitor to Sydney, I'd say these people don't know when they're well off. Sydney's public transport plays Melbourne off a break.

Its just another maniac twain buff with too much time on its hands and able to use social media to whip up yet another mob of baby boomer now retired hippies to start yet another social media action group.
Yes Sydney has a very good system (awaits the inevitable experts on every topic to wade in) which is so popular that it is strugling to cope at times through its own sucsess.

There is no doubt our rail system is better then melbourne which is more about how pathetic your rail system south of the border is then how good our network is here in Sydney.

There are a couple of black spots however. One is the end of the T3 in what we call the sefton triangle area which is basically from bankstown to lidcombe and cabramatta.

Another is the T2 from Central to Lidcombe where there are all stops mishmashed with limited stops which reduces capacity and frequency.

Another is the northern line mixing with the western line which reduces northern line capacity.
