The South via East Hills line extends to the south-western suburbs of Sydney. Through the Central Business District services operate along the City Circle line. Most trains to and from the South via East Hills line operate along the Airport line between Central and Wolli Creek, and the two lines are combined in timetables. A small number of services travel along the Illawarra line to Wolli Creek, stopping at Redfern, St Peters and Sydenham. Beyond Wolli Creek the line extends to Glenfield, where it joins the South via Granville line, and continues to Campbelltown and Macarthur. The line has four tracks between Wolli Creek and Revesby, and two tracks beyond Revesby. Trains typically alternate between all stations services from the city to Revesby, and services running nonstop between Wolli Creek and Revesby and then all stations to Macarthur. Some peak services terminate at Campbelltown. Between Glenfield and Macarthur the Southern Sydney Freight Line is on the western side of the line.
