Sydney’s new public transport timetable gets first workout

NEW South Wales Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian has given Sydney's new public transport timetable a big thumbs up.

The schedule which adds 2700 bus, ferry and train services across the network was given its first workout this morning and seems to have held up to the demands of peak time.

"So far I've been pleased with the performance of the new timetable although obviously it is in the early stages," she said.

But while there have been quicker services for some, it has come by reducing the number of stops meaning some stations now have fewer services.

The overhaul has been led by Sydney Trains chief executive Howard Collins, formerly the chief operating officer for the London Underground.
