Sydney has a modern bus service that makes up a large part of the overall transport network.
Using Public Buses in Sydney
A unique feature of Sydney’s bus network is that each stop has its own ID. At the stop you may also find a QR Code on the station sign, scan that and get info on real-time departures.
For fares, use your Opal Card, you tap on when entering and tap off when exiting. The fare is automatically calculated and deducted from your card. More about Opal Cards.
You can also purchase single journey tickets and pay via credit card on the bus. Drivers currently do not carry cash. You need to have a “contactless” type of credit card and tap on and tap off in the same way you would use your Opal Card.
For journey planning, you can use several APPS, or use the journey planner at https://transportnsw.info and more info on using buses here.
The B-Line bus service runs between Mona Vale and Wynyard. The uniquely yellow-colored double-decker buses are unscheduled services that operate at high-frequency with services departing every 5 min in peak times, 10 minutes till 10pm, and every 15 minutes from 10 pm till 12.30 am.
You can catch B-Line from the new branded B-Line bus stops at Mona Vale, Narrabeen, Warriewood, Collaroy, Dee Why, Brookvale, Manly Vale, Spit Junction Mosman, Neutral Bay and Wynyard.
Turn Up and Go
The “Turn Up and Go” service will operate every 10 minutes between 6am to 9am to Caringbah Station and 4pm to 8:30pm to Lilli Pilli Point. The trial will cater for customers who normally drive and park at the station. Customers can tap on and off using their Opal card, credit and debit cards and linked smart devices.
