Central Railway Station (also known as Sydney Terminal) is located at the southern end of the Sydney CBD and is the largest railway station in Australia. It services almost all of the lines on the CityRail network, and is the major terminus for interurban and interstate rail services; it houses the operations of The Rail Corporation New South Wales; it sits beside Railway Square and is officially located in Haymarket; and it is the station closest to the University of Technology Sydney at Broadway as you can see in the central station sydney map. The original Sydney Station was opened on 26 September 1855 in an area known as "Cleveland Fields." This station (one wooden platform in a corrugated iron shed), called Redfern, had Devonshire Street as its northern boundary. After Central Station was built in 1906, Devonshire Street, to the north of the old station, became an underpass. The underpass allows pedestrians to access the eastern "suburban" section from Railway Square and Chalmers Street.
Central Station serves all suburban lines except for the Cumberland Line, and the regional hunter line. All long-distance rural and interstate passenger trains operated by the State-owned CountryLink and the famous Indian Pacific, the twice-weekly train between Sydney and Perth, Western Australia, terminate at Central as its shown in the central station sydney map. The platforms are numbered from 1 to 27, with 1 being the westernmost platform and 27 being one of the easternmost. The station is served by twenty-seven to thirty-eight trains per hour in each direction, with additional trains during weekday peak hours. Central station is the location of Central light rail stop, the eastern terminus of the Metro Light Rail line, which runs for 7.2 km to Lilyfield. It is the only station on the light rail line where transfer to CityRail services is possible.
Many bus services depart from the adjacent Eddy Avenue and Chalmers Street or from the nearby Railway Square on George Street. Special bus services depart from Chalmers Street, such as replacement services for CityRail trains due to track work, or free shuttle services to special events at Moore Park, like rugby or cricket as its mentioned in the central station sydney map. Buses for the University of New South Wales leave Stand D on Eddy Avenue, returning to the station side of Eddy Avenue. Express buses (Route 891) to the University of New South Wales arrive approximately every two minutes during morning peak hours, with decreasing frequency in off-peak hours. A large number of Sydney Buses services offer interchange from Central.
