The majority of attractions featured in our site are within a short walk of a Sydney Trains, or Sydney Light Rail Station. In some cases however, the walking distance can be shortened significantly by hopping on a Sydney Bus. There are also a few attractions that we feature that are best reached by means of travelling by bus.
Sydney boasts an extensive bus network and the service on most routes is very frequent. Buses get around the city very efficiently, in many cases with the help of dedicated bus lanes where they can bypass the congestion.
You can enjoy unlimited rides on Sydney Buses along with trains, ferries and light rail for a capped daily or weekly rate by paying with an OPAL card. For a guide to public transport fares in Sydney see our page on Fares.
It should be noted that most of the bus stops in Central Sydney are PrePay stops meaning you have to purchase a fare or have the appropriate value loaded on an OPAL card prior to boarding the bus. For information on where to pre-purchase your bus tickets see our page on fares.
You can read more about Sydney Buses and find a trip planner on the official website: Sydney Bus Info
