Green Square railway station is located on the Airport line, serving the Sydney suburb of Green Square. It is served by Sydney Trains T2 Airport line services.

History[edit]

Green Square station opened on 21 May 2000 when the Airport line opened from Central to Wolli Creek.[1] Like other stations on the line, Green Square was built and is operated by the Airport Link Company as part of a public–private partnership.[2]

Prior to March 2011, passengers were required to pay an access fee to use the station. The access fee was removed after the State Government reached an agreement with the Airport Link Company to pay the fee at Green Square on behalf of passengers.[3] Patronage increased by around 70% at the two stations in the months following the removal of the fee.[4]

Green Square station featured in the music video clip for Marvin Priest's Own This Club.
