With the arrival of Sydney’s new Metro service, additional buses are set to change the daily commute.

We are working closely with Metro, we expect to see a good integration of this timetable, starting April 29, Monday morning Sydney Trains CEO Howard Collins told 9News.

The changes will mean good news for commuters on the T1 North Shore line and the T9 Northern line.

During morning peak, there will be a train every three minutes from Gordon via Chatswood into the city.

In the afternoon, there will be extra services for Wollstonecraft, Waverton and Artarmon as well as Chatswood, St Leonards, Warrawee, Pymble and Wahroonga.

Elsewhere on the network there will be extra outbound morning services to Western Sydney and inbound services to Blacktown.

Mr Collins confirmed with the extra services an additional 31 staff will be available on platforms with extra buses complimenting the extra services.

There will be extra services to the city from St Ives, Terry Hills, Narellan, Leppington and Belrose.

I’m very concerned because the last time the government tinkered with a timetable, they made a huge mess of it Labor’s Sophie Cotsis said.
