Around 87 per cent of travel is in private vehicles -and lately weekend traffic in Sydney - it can be worse than weekday peak traffic.
Let’s be honest, we’ve all experienced weekend traffic madness, where on a sunny Saturday morning you decide to head to the beach and you’re stuck in long queues reminiscent of your weekday dash to work.
It’s not your imagination, traffic is increasing on the weekends, a problem according to Transport and Regional Economics, that is costing the national economy $16.5 billion each year.
To beat the traffic blues - millions of people are turning to public transport - and to accommodate this upsurge in demand Transport for NSW is beefing up weekend train services. Yay! Now you can skip the clogged-up roads and catch a train instead.
