V/Line passengers on the Bendigo, Swan Hill and Echuca services will see changes in their train timetables from December 1 as the company works to provide more reliability.
Some changes will see trains leave Bendigo up to five minutes earlier while others will leave a few minutes later.
Changes for trains departing Bendigo on the weekday timetable include the 11.36am and 1.36pm services leaving three minutes earlier, the 12.30pm and 4.02pm services leaving two minutes earlier and 2.38pm services leaving five minutes earlier.
The only other major change on the arrival times for the Bendigo weekday timetable is the 7.45am now leaving 6 minutes later at 7.51am and arriving at Southern Cross Station 16 minutes later than usual at 9.44am.
There are no major changes to the weekend train timetable for Bendigo.
A V/Line spokesperson confirmed the changes will be implemented in December.
"There will be a timetable change on the Bendigo line from December 1, 2019, to help passengers plan their journey with more certainty," the spokesperson said.
"We encourage passengers to download a copy of the new timetable to check service times."
It is hoped that by trains leaving earlier from Bendigo, they are able to be on-time when they arrive at the busy part of the lines that are shared with metropolitan trains.
V/Line implemented the changes to reflect current operating conditions on the line.
It includes how trains share the tracks with other services, changes to arrival and departure platforms and changes to speed limits on some sections of the line implemented earlier in the year.
New timetables are available to download now from the V/Line website. Printed version will be available at staffed train stations from November 18.
