Ten new peak trains every week for Craigieburn line

The Andrews Labor Government will add 10 new Craigieburn line train services in the peak, every week – to get people in Melbourne’s north home safer and sooner.

The extra services will be introduced as part of a new metropolitan train timetable, which will start on 27 August.

A new morning peak service will run from Craigieburn to the city each weekday, and a new evening peak service will run from the city back to Craigieburn.

The new timetable will also change the stopping patterns of Craigieburn services, with all morning peak trains running through the City Loop.

The change will simplify the way the Craigieburn, Werribee and Sunbury lines interact – boosting the reliability of services on all lines and connecting passengers directly to more parts of the city in the morning.

The timetable change will also add 10 new peak services to the Werribee and Sunbury lines, and extend two Hurstbridge line services each day, providing more peak trains to more people in Melbourne’s north and west.

The new train timetables will be available in July from www.ptv.vic.gov.au.
