More trains when they're needed most

14,000 extra weekly seats to be added at key times

These extra services will add more than 14,000 seats to the network each week and have been identified as a priority based on customer feedback, wait times, and patronage modelling, as well as some operational efficiencies.

The extra services are listed below and will be available in the TransLink Journey Planner from mid-April 2019.
