Public transport

All aboard for NYE

Your best bet for travelling to the celebrations.

Transport for NSW releases public transport information in early December.

Very large crowds are expected on New Year’s Eve. If you travel into the city, plan your trip and arrive early.

You’ll need an Opal card to travel on public transport. Remember to top up your card before the event as queues are expected on the day.

Getting home

Getting out of the city is different on New Year’s Eve. The way you come in will be different to the way you leave. There are many roads closed to people walking, driving and cycling, so follow directions and check signs.

Be prepared for a longer walk to buses and trains. Some train stations may have different entry and exit points.

Try to leave the city after 1am to avoid the crowds.
