Travelling to events
Marches, parades and festivals
During major planned events, State Transit provides additional bus services to cater for increased customer demand. Many events involve road closures that may result in diversions to bus services.
Sporting Events and Concerts
During major sporting events, additional regular buses or special event shuttle buses may operate.
State Transit operates Moore Park Special Event Buses during major events at the Moore Park precinct, including the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) and Allianz Stadium.
Buses operate before and after games or concerts and normally display Route 1 on their destination board at the front of the bus. Buses normally leave from Chalmers Street outside Central Station arriving at the Moore Park Bus Station. For some special events, Special Event Buses also leave from Circular Quay (Route 3).
In some instances, such as Sydney Swans AFL or Waratahs Super 12 Rugby matches, special Park and Ride services also operate. Check transportnsw.info for specific event details.
During Saturday races at Randwick Racecourse, State Transit operates chartered Special Event Buses between Central Station and Randwick Racecourse.
Buses operate before, during and after the races and normally display Route 32 on their destination board at the front of the bus. Buses normally leave from Chalmers Street outside Central Station and arrive at Randwick Racecourse on Alison Road. Check transportnsw.info for specific event details.
