Public transport

Getting to our campuses by bus, train and ferry

Our main Sydney sites are all well served by public transport. Check out our campus-by-campus guide.

Our Sydney campuses are all close to the city and harbour, where you’ll find a range of public transport options.

As bus, rail and ferry timetables and routes can change, we suggest you visit the Transport for NSW trip planner before you set out.

To help you get around campus and from one campus to another, we run our own campus bus shuttle service during semester time and Welcome Week.

Accessible bus for people with a disability

We have an eight-seater mini bus with full hydraulic wheelchair lift. For more details, call Campus Security on 9351 3487.
