T6 Carlingford Line closure
On Sunday 5 January 2020, the T6 Carlingford Rail Line will permanently close to allow for construction of the Parramatta Light Rail that will connect Carlingford to Westmead via the Parramatta CBD.
A new bus route, the 535, will be introduced for customers impacted by the closure of the T6 Line while construction of the light rail is underway.
The new route will keep customers moving between Carlingford and the Parramatta CBD while this important new transport mode for Western Sydney is being built.
Route 535 will run at least every 15 minutes in the busy periods of the day – a huge boost for customers who currently have just two train services per hour during peak on the T6 Carlingford Line. Real-time data will be available on the online Trip Planner, as well as on third-party apps, so customers can plan ahead.
The bus route will operate between Carlingford, Telopea, Dundas, Rydalmere, Camellia/Rosehill and Parramatta CBD. Customers wishing to travel to Clyde will need to interchange at Parramatta for a rail service.
A standard train fare will apply on the 535, which means customers will continue to benefit from the 30 per cent off-peak discount on standard adult Opal fares.
The 535 Carlingford to Parramatta bus fleet will be air-conditioned, accessible with low floors for wheelchair and pram access, on-board information displays and audio announcements on vehicles.
