How to avoid being pulled off the train in Australia
- by admin
In a time when Australia’s railways have been facing a surge in passenger numbers and safety, passengers are urged to check their train tickets before heading out to travel.
Read more The Federal Government has said it will be introducing new safety measures as part of its $4.2 billion National Rail Safety Plan, including introducing new training for staff on how to deal with passengers and ensuring they don’t have a “pass through” from the driver to the passenger.
Passengers travelling through the Sydney CBD have been told to check in at ticket counters, and train companies will be giving them the option of purchasing their tickets at ticket machines.
There are currently four ticket machines in the CBD that accept credit and debit cards.
The NSW Government said it is also looking at how it can use new technologies to monitor how passengers move through its stations.
“Passengers are being encouraged to check the details of their ticket before boarding their train and to also ensure they are fully compliant with the laws of their country of residence,” NSW Transport Minister Gladys Berejiklian said in a statement.

In the last six months, the number of people travelling on public transport has more than doubled, according to data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).
More than 60 per cent of Australian public transport journeys in the last month were made by a single person, with just under one million people travelling via public transport each day.
Despite the recent increase, the ABS said passenger numbers are expected to decline for the foreseeable future, but not to the extent that a large passenger rail network is needed.
In 2016, the ABC revealed that the peak number of passengers was more than 2.8 million, and the average age of a train journey was around 24.
But a report from the University of New South Wales found that a new rail network would not be needed until 2030.
It found a single passenger train network would save an average of $30,000 in ticket costs over 30 years.
That’s despite a report by the New South Wares Institute (NSWWI) in 2021 estimating that it would save $2.4 billion over 30-year periods.
While a new railway network will be needed for passengers, many people will be happy with the current network.
Rail travel in Sydney is booming.
More than 30 per cent more people travelled by train than by bus in the Sydney metropolitan area in 2020.
The number of trains on Sydney’s streets was up by more than 20 per cent, while car use on the CBD’s streets increased by more the same.
And in Melbourne, the rail network has been expanding rapidly, with the number on the track up by 10 per cent over the past year.
So, the question for Australians travelling through Australia is: how will they get to work, school and social gatherings?
With more than 10 million trains operating in the country, it can be difficult to know how many people are on each train and what time of day they arrive, train operators say.
For those with disabilities, it is essential that everyone travelling on the train has a seat, even if that means a seat in a car.
On public transport, many commuters are encouraged to wear a seat belt and use hand rails.
Train operators say they are also encouraging passengers to take the opportunity to board a car at the end of the journey to take advantage of the opportunity for a quick meal or drink.
With the number and frequency of accidents on the trains increasing, train passengers are encouraged not to leave their seats in a hurry.
If a train operator tells you to take your seat, do it, it’s not the end, says Mr McBride.
One of the most common complaints about public transport is how long it takes to get to a train station.
A new study by the University, Queensland and New South Welsh Universities (QUE) has found that commuters are spending an average 12 minutes waiting for a train.
An average of two passengers have a medical issue waiting for the train, and nearly 10 per year, people travel more than 400 kilometres from their home station to catch a train, which takes them nearly 300 kilometres.
At peak times, the average train will take over an hour and a half to arrive at a station.
A train’s journey is usually less than 15 minutes, with a passenger usually spending around five minutes waiting.
However, the QUE researchers found that the average journey time is only 4.5 minutes, and it takes an average three minutes to reach the station.
The Queensland University study found that passengers are more likely to wait for the next train, rather than waiting for their journey to end, but also find the train a much faster journey than the previous one.
