Hunter transport advocates will take their concerns about a draft rail timetable to the government next week after a leaked version left the region disappointed.
The Hunter Commuter Council says the draft has several problems including connectivity issues and slower journey times.
It says the government maintains the leaked version is not the final document and was invited to make comments towards the upcoming timetable due in October.
Secretary Graham Boyd says they will make a formal submission on Monday.
"Well certainly the draft report had many disappointments in it, if you were looking for improvements in public transport," he said.
"How much change is feasible between May and October of course is a mooted point, but we are glad that we've got the opportunity to put in our concerns."
Mr Boyd is concerned there is not enough time to improve the draft timetable.
"Well certainly that is of major concern to us," he said.
"With past timetable changes of the magnitude that are expected in October, the preparation time has usually been about 12 months."
