More services for the Adelaide passenger rail network

When: From Monday 12 October 2020 to Friday 30 October 2020

Affecting: TONS, SEAFRD

Residents, students and workers from Adelaide’s southern suburbs can look forward to extra services announced for the new Flinders train line.

The Flinders train line is an extension of the existing Tonsley line, which currently only operates on weekdays to a 20 minute frequency during peak times and 30 minutes at all other times until 7pm.


Tell us what you think of the new Flinders train line timetable

The timetable proposed for the new Flinders train line extends services until late on weeknights and will provide a 20 minute frequency during peak times on weekdays and 30 minutes at all other times.

The new service will also run on weekends for the first time from early morning to late night.

Staff at Flinders Medical Centre have been catered for, with services to ensure arrival at the precinct by 7am, 7 days a week.

The new Flinders train line will greatly improve public transport options for those living and working in the southern suburbs and will deliver better train services through investment in our public transport network.

Extended train services will help make the area more accessible and help connect employment, education, community resources, medical care and recreational opportunities.

The Flinders train line is expected to open for passengers in December.

To provide Flinders line timetable feedback

Consultation will be open until 5pm Friday 30 October. 

The Flinders train line timetable will replace the Tonsley train timetable and will continue to appear with the Seaford train timetable.

The introduction of weekend services on the Flinders line will allow for Seaford services to run express to and from Woodlands Park to the city, providing a consistent 30 minute frequency and reducing travel times for Seaford services by approximately 5 minutes.

Passengers wishing to travel to Flinders from the Seaford line or the reverse will continue to be able to transfer at Woodlands Park station.

More details of the Flinders train line opening will be available on this website as the project progresses.


Flinders Link project details are available on the Department for Infrastructure and Transport website.
