Trains missing scheduled stops on Sydney's rail network have long been a frustration of passengers left standing on platforms or forced to disembark further down the track.
Now new figures released under freedom of information laws show the Airport line is the worst for stations skipped, at stops such as Wolli Creek and Sydney Airport's international and domestic terminals, followed by the North Shore line.
Wolli Creek near Sydney Airport had 23 trains skip it between November and early February, while the domestic and international terminals, Mascot and Green Square each had 12 services miss them.
The North Shore line was the second worst for stations skipped. Artarmon was skipped on 11 occasions during the period and Waitara, Waverton and Wollstonecraft stations 10 times each.
And the data shows a surge in stations skipped after changes to Sydney's rail timetable late last year.
Labor transport spokeswoman Jodi McKay said the data would have shown Sydney Trains early on that there was a problem with the new timetable following its introduction.
“If the reports weren't enough to convince them there was a problem, looking at the data on the number of skipped stops should have been,” she said.
