Mascot railway station is located on the Airport line, serving the Sydney suburb of Mascot. It is served by Sydney Trains T8 Airport & South line services.

History[edit]

Mascot station opened on 21 May 2000 when the Airport line opened from Central to Wolli Creek.[2] Like other stations on the line, Mascot was built and is operated by the Airport Link Company as part of a public–private partnership.[3]

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 Mascot and Green Square stations on behalf of passengers.[4] Patronage increased by around 70% at the two stations in the months following the removal of the fee.[5]

The concourse of Mascot station contains the Mascot Operations Room, which is responsible for operation of the four privately operated stations on the Airport line.[6]

At the platforms the station is signed "Mascot Suburban", to prevent confusion with the stations for the nearby airport, which is often referred to as Mascot Airport.
