Petition Tag - intercity trains
The issue is the increasing number of commuters that board the intercity trains at Central, Redfern and Strathfield, only then to alight at Strathfield, Eastwood, Epping and Hornsby during the busy evening peak periods.
Due to the high volume, most Central Coast and Newcastle commuters are forced to stand, which is not fair considering they have a lot further to travel and pay a higher fare due to the longer distance traveled.
These "suburban" commuters have 2 services for every 1 intercity service that go to these stations and the time difference is only 5-10 minutes.
