The upgraded station is more accessible and features improved amenities, to cater to Ballan’s growing population.

Ballan Station passengers now benefit from 100 extra services per week as part of a timetable change that started Sunday 31 January 2021. This was made possible by the  Ballarat Line Upgrade.
