Video footage has been obtained by Nine News showing scenes of shocking violence at Sydney train stations.
CCTV cameras at Kings Cross, Cabramatta and Blacktown railway stations captured violent attacks which left victims seriously injured and security staff outnumbered.
At Blacktown station in Western Sydney a group of teenage girls were recorded attacking a couple, leaving the man unconscious and his partner with blood streaming down her face.
In another attack at Kings Cross Station a man came dangerously close to the tracks as he was beaten by a group of men.
There are three attacks each day at Sydney train stations, according to Bureau of Crime statistics.
NSW opposition transport spokeswoman Penny Sharpe told Nine News that was "three too many."
The opposition said government cut-backs meant there were no transit officers guarding the stations after midnight between Sunday and Wednesday.
Tim Thornton, who almost died when he was attacked at Gosford station on the central coast of NSW, said the people behind the attacks were "wrecking it for everyone."
"Because all they want to do is go out and have a fight at the end of the night or even through the night," he said.
"It just wrecks people's lives."
