Transportation in Sydney
Hail one of Sydney's abundant taxis off the street or at taxi ranks at Circular Quay, Wynyard Station and Central Station. Prices are fixed and signposted and cabs can be booked ahead by phone.
Explore Sydney's eastern suburbs by bus, as there is only one train line in the area linking the city centre and Bondi Junction. Tickets are sold by sections. If you're unsure, opt for the DayTripper and BusTripper tickets.
Rent your car
In Sydney traffic travels on the left and most cars are therefore right-hand drive. Sydney Harbour Bridge is a cashless toll bridge, so visitors need to buy a toll pass beforehand (see www.rta.nsw.gov.au). Most parking meters take coin, credit card and even mobile-phone payments, and rates vary according to time and location.
Opt for the DayTripper and BusTripper tickets, which provide unlimited travel for a day. The DayTripper ticket covers all regular Sydney bus and ferry services as well as all suburban City Rail services.
