Goodbye Station Link and hello Sydney Metro
23 May, 2019

With just days to go before Sydney Metro services kick off between Epping and Chatswood on 26 May, now is a good time to start planning your updated journey.

Station Link bus services will stop operating during Sunday morning when the brand new Sydney Metro services commence.

Travel on the new Metro line between Tallawong and Chatswood will be free on opening day with the gates at the 13 North West Metro stations open all day.

Take a few moments before the changeover to visit the trip planner, check commuter car park locations on the Sydney Metro website, and start following the new Metro twitter handle @SydneyMetro.

Don’t forget to plan ahead and travel early.

To support the launch of the new metro services there will be some adjustments to trains, busses and parking arrangements in the area.

Temporary parking changes and bus layovers that were introduced as part of Station Link operations will be reversed in stages after Metro begins and will be clearly signposted. Motorists should always check signs before parking.

North West Night Bus, a late night turn-up-and-go bus service with at least one bus every 10 minutes, will run in Sydney’s North West from 26 May until late 2019 as Sydney Metro grows to full operations.

The high-frequency service will replace Metro services between 9.30pm and 4.30am Sunday to Wednesday for up to six months. This will allow passengers to continue travelling in the North West while additional essential works are completed on the metro system.

The new Metro North West Line includes 13 stations between Tallawong and Chatswood, 4000 commuter car parking spaces and is Australia’s first fully accessible railway which will deliver fast, safe and reliable travel.
