Ararat customers will benefit from a further nine new train services every week, on top of the 10 announced last month.
The 19 new weekday and weekend services will start running on the Ararat line in August providing more choice for local passengers.
The nine extra services include the extension of an existing weekday afternoon Ballarat service to start in Ararat, and four new weekend services.
On Saturdays and Sundays, a new late morning service will run from Ararat to Ballarat, and an early afternoon service from Melbourne to Ballarat will be extended to Ararat.
Late morning services on weekends will give locals the opportunity to travel to Melbourne for footy games and other events by train, while the new afternoon service allows people to get back to Ararat earlier in the day.
The extra services announced last month included a weekday morning service departing from Ararat Station and connecting with a Melbourne bound train at Ballarat, and a weekday afternoon service departing Southern Cross, extended to Ararat.
