    Central Coast to Sydney commute - is it worth it?

    agree it won't happen though it would be nice if they could just think about it a bit and maybe limit the stops on some of the trains, they have done this on the central line via Strathfield it would be great if the train just stopped at Hornsby, Chatswood, St Leonards, North Sydney, Wynard and town hall..I understand that its not that simple but I doubt its rocket science and would make such a difference!

    Central Coast to Sydney commute - is it worth it?

    I agree that everyone is different and looking for different things, for us Melbourne didn't offer a great lifestyle as we like to be by the beach and didn't want to bring our children up in a city suburb, we find we have more of a family life now and for that reason the commute for me is worth it, for us the coast offers everything we were looking for and it took us 5 years of moving around to find it. My husband is from Melbourne abnd wouldn't go back..as long as you find the right lifestyle for your circumstances I was giving my opinion that for what we have the commute is worth it.

    Central Coast to Sydney commute - is it worth it?

    Hi, I do the commute everyday and it is doable, it takes me 2 hours door to door from Bensville to Woy Woy Station to the CBD, terrigal would take a bit longer as you would need to go to Gosford. If you were working in Ryde you would get the Strathfield train and change at McQuarie Park, the train during would take about 1hr 15...you can check timings and the best way to go by going on 131500 website which is the transport website. Chatswood would be better as that takes just under an hour. for the lifestye on the coast it is worth it, I usually work on the train and have that time taken into account for my working day. The trains are nice and quiet. I would not reccommend driving, the roads can be really busy and parking is a nightmare
