The move to Sunday timetables will see a significant reduction in service across the entire network. School, industrial and peak CBD express services will not operate and most other services have a reduced frequency in comparison to a weekday timetable. Full information on the exact changes will be available in Real-Time travel apps.
This comes as COVID-19 restrictions continue to be tightened across Greater Sydney in response to the growing outbreak of the Delta strain in Sydney, with 1242 local cases since the start of the current cluster as of 18 July. Restrictions on movement are forcing work and study from home whilst many cannot leave their Local Government Areas except for essential work. Masks continue to be mandatory on public transport.
Transport for NSW COO Howard Collins urged commuters to stay home and not travel on public transport services across the coming weeks. Collins also noted that it is really important that we ensure the remaining services are only used by essential workers as per the current public health orders.
