Commuters In Western Sydney Take Note Of The New Sydney Trains Services Code Map

From 20th of October, commuters will have to know what your service codes are for Sydney Trains, Buses, Ferries and Light Rail.

Don't worry it won't confuse as it starts with the following letters and every mode has a code and colour:
Train iconTrains
Bus iconBuses
Ferry iconFerries
Light rail iconLight rail
New number codes for Sydney train lines (T1-T7) and Sydney ferry lines (F1-F7) have been introduced, in combination with line names.
These codes will appear in Trip planner results and Timetable searches when you set the date to Sunday 20 October or later.
