An additional 28 new train services will be running on the Ferny Grove line from today.
Transport Minister Scott Emerson said passengers can now simply ‘turn up and go’ with a train arriving every 15 minutes during the weekday off-peak period.
“Today we are delivering another LNP election commitment to improve train frequency on the Ferny Grove line.” Mr. Emerson said.
“This is a two-year, $18 Million trial and I would encourage anyone thinking of driving to the city to avoid the congestion and take the train.”
“The substantial ramp up of off-peak frequency is an important part of the Newman Government’s plan to encourage more people to catch public transport.” Mr. Emerson said.
The first new inbound train will leave Ferny Grove station at 8.42 am weekdays, with a train departing every 15 minutes until 3.12 pm. The first new outbound train will depart Central at 8.21 am, with trains departing every 15 minutes until 3.18 pm.
As part of the trial, there will be some minor changes on the Shorncliffe, Doomben and Cleveland lines.
Several bus routes that service stations on these lines have had their timetables upgraded to ensure bus-train connectivity.
Updated train and bus route timetables are available on the TransLink website.
