Parramatta railway station is located on the Main Western line, serving the Sydney suburb of Parramatta. It is served by Sydney Trains T1 Western Line, T2 Inner West & Leppington and T5 Cumberland Line services and NSW TrainLink Blue Mountains Line, Central West XPT and Outback Xplorer services.
Parramatta station is one of Sydney's oldest. Sydney's first line connected Sydney and Parramatta Junction near Granville and opened on 26 September 1855. It was extended to the current Parramatta station on 4 July 1860.
In 1985, the station was refurbished with a new underground subway bus interchange built at the station's north-east side.
In late 2003, work began on a new transport interchange which linked the station to the neighbouring Westfield Parramatta shopping centre. The works included upgrading the station, providing more access to commuters, and constructing a new bus interchange. On 19 February 2006 the interchange was opened.
The Darcy Street entrance to the station is closed from 1 September 2018 to late 2019 while improvements are made to the station.
