Advertising is to be increased on the Sydney train network and the extra revenue will be used to improve services.

AAP reports New South Wales state transport minister Gladys Berejiklian said on Wednesday that up to 150 new digital advertising screens will be installed at stations and advertising on trains will be increased.

"The new advertising contracts are expected to double the revenue Sydney Trains receives through advertising to at least $100 million over five years," she said.

Ms Berejiklian said the money raised from new three-year and five-year advertising contracts with four companies would be spent on improving services.
