Buses to replace Inner West Light Rail in January 2018

Buses will replace Inner West Light Rail in January 2018 as follows:

  • 6am Monday 1 January 2018  to 6am Monday 15 January:  Buses will replace all light rail services between Central and Dulwich Hill.
  • 6am Monday 15 January to 6am Monday 29 January:  Light rail services will resume between Convention and Dulwich Hill, while buses continue to run between Central and The Star.
  • Normal light rail services will resume at 6am on 29 January.

Replacement buses will operate between Central and The Star at night throughout this whole period.

Replacement bus services will effectively start operating from 4.30am until 6am on 1 January, following light rail services running at an increased frequency (every 8 to 10 minutes since 3pm on 31 December) throughout the day and extended past midnight until 4am to help customers to get home.

Replacement buses will run approximately every 5 minutes between Central and Lilyfield or every 10 minutes between Lilyfield and Dulwich Hill during the day – depending on traffic conditions – and approximately every 30 minutes at night.

Night replacement buses will run between Central and The Star will run from 11pm to 6am Saturday to Thursday and midnight to 6am on Fridays.

Please follow the new brighter 'pink' signs in place from the light rail stops for directions to the nearest replacement bus stops (note: those signs used to be yellow in past network closures).
