New tram service starts in Sydney

On Saturday 14 December the long awaited Sydney Light Rail started taking passengers with over 160,000 people taking advantage of two fare free days to test the trams.

Passengers can now travel on trams along Sydney streets between Randwick and Circular Quay. The trams connect the Prince of Wales Hospital and University of NSW with the Moore Park sporting and entertainment precinct with Surry Hills, Central station, Chinatown and the CBD.

The start of passenger services on the CBD and South East Light Rail route was a historic occasion.

Transport for NSW is reminding people to ditch the distraction and look up to stay safe around light rail. Check out the latest safety advertisement here.

The L3 to Kingsford will open in March 2020.
