The first of Ararat's new passenger services arrives in August. The Ararat-Ballarat-Melbourne line has been hit by 37 cancellations this year.

V/Line’s cancellation of an Ararat to Ballarat train service on Wednesday morning has cost passengers time and valuable appointments and business meetings.
