PrePay-Only Sydney CBD
From Monday 22 June 2009 bus stops throughout Sydney's CBD were converted to PrePay-only between 7am and 7pm on weekdays. PrePay simply means purchasing a ticket before boarding the bus. No tickets are sold on board the bus at PrePay-only bus stops or on PrePay-only bus services.
See our CBD Ticket and Destination guide for information on what ticket to buy in the City to get to your suburb.

Tickets are available from a variety of outlets including Australia Post outlets, Newsagents, 7-eleven and convenience stores. Tickets are also available from Sydney Buses' TransitShops, CityRail train stations and Sydney Ferries wharves. Find out where to buy tickets close to you.
