And as for the west:
Ringwood, Alamein and GW 15min Mon-Fri inter peak
Nine went on to say it will be rolled out on ‘all suburban trunk lines, 7 days’ with perticular focus on the western suburbs as the Caulfield and Ringwood groups already enjoy such a frequency.Ringwood group have 10 minute service on Sundays. Definitely not Mon-Fri (15 minute off-peak). Don't know about Saturday, but when it was introduced on Sundays, Saturday remained at 20 minutes, I think.
Ringwood 10min Weekends
Alamein and GW 20min Weekends
Werribee is 9tph on Weekdays:
20mins to Werribee, express Footscray-Newport-Laverton
20mins to Laverton, stopping all stations
20mins to Williamstown, stopping all stations
Only every 20 mins across the line on weekends - all to Werribee, with connecting Williamstown shuttle.
Sunbury is every 20mins to Watergardens, every 40mins to Sunbury, 7 days a week
(Sunbury gets a better frequency in the evenings when the whole line drops to every 30mins)
On weekends, trains on both lines tend to be quite full by Footscray - upping Werribee to something similar to weekdays and Sunbury to every 10 mins (at least to Watergardens) would be most welcome.
Newport is 9tph, Laverton 6, Werribee 3.
There is no reason why: Werribee, Wyndham Vale, Sunbury, Craigieburn, Coburg, Mernda, Greensborough, Ringwood, Alamein, Glen Waverley, Dandenong, Frankston and Sandringham ALL could not be 6tph from 6am to midnight 7 days a week, with extra services in peak times.
Williamstown, Laverton (can increase Altona loop by running one way during peak), Melton, Upfield, Hurstbridge, Lilydale, Belgrave, Pakenahm, Cranbourne can all be run at 3tph or more (can run shuttles if need be to increase tph).
