Sydney Buses

Sydney sightseeing

The buses in central Sydney are operated by Sydney Buses. They are blue and white in colour. In the outer suburbs there are buses operated by some 35 other companies, but most of your needs can be met with Sydney Buses. The buses go everywhere and are too numerous to list in detail. However, it is useful to note that the route numbers give a general guide to the destination of the buses.

Sydney Buses

There are also weekly travel passes for buses and ferries only (without trains). Although these are slightly cheaper, the buses tend to be rather slow and tedious for long journeys, so we recommend you use trains if you plan on going far.

Bus services which are specifically designed for visitors are the Sydney Explorer bus (red) and the Bondi Explorer bus (blue). These buses are conspicuously different because of their colouring, and all require special tickets. They cannot be used with ordinary bus tickets or with travel passes. The Sydney explorer is a hop-on, hop-off service that services the CBD and popular tourist areas. The blue Bondi Explorer travels from Sydney to Bondi as a hop-on, hop-off service.

The Sydney Buses service from the airport to the city are green and yellow in colour and their route numbers are 300 and 350.
