Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
COVIDSafe capacity on all modes of NSW public transport increased from the start of November, welcoming more people back to the network to support the State’s road to reopening.
Transport for NSW Chief Operating Officer Howard Collins said in line with health advice, public transport services were allowed to increase capacity to around 75 per cent on each mode, which means people can now sit next to each other on their trip.
“More green dots will be rolled out across the network to continue helping customers choose the best places to sit and stand,” he said.
A Waratah train will now be able to carry 122 customers per carriage, up from 82, a typical two-door bus will be able to carry 48 customers, up from 27, a L1 lightrail will now be able to carry 156 customers per carriage, up from 71 and a Freshwater ferry will be able to carry 800 customers, up from 543.
Mr Collins said capacity increases on public transport are just in time for warmer weather and regional travel.
“For those itching to visit regional NSW, TrainLink regional rail and coach services will also be booked at 75 per cent capacity, allowing more people on our services to go explore the regions,” he said.
All other measures of our COVIDSafe Transport Plan will continue, including the enhanced cleaning regime to help keep customers COVID safe across all services in the state.
Customers are still asked to plan ahead, wear a mask and find a green dot when using the network – those who are feeling unwell should not use public transport, but stay home and get tested.
