    Not really. We have an extensive above ground suburban railway system - except it doesn't go to all parts of Sydney (such as Bondi Beach, or Manly, or the outer north-west suburbs, or the south-west growth corridor). When the trains reach the city CBD they do go underground, so you can get into central Sydney relatively easily with half a dozen stations to choose from. The whole system is slow, dirty, congested, old and a bit of an embarrassment... don't expect anything too grand, but it is functional (sort of).
    There's also an extensive bus network. over 6 years ago

    For Opera House, catch a train to Circular Quay (on the City Network), and when you get there and out of the station, turn right and follow your nose around the water. Can't miss it .... over 6 years ago

    There are plenty of buses and trains to go anywhere you want. It's one of the best public transport systems I'be seen ever. If you stay for longer I recommend you to catch a weekly multipass which allows you to catch trains, buses and ferries. There are 3 zones depending on how far do you want to go from the centrum. over 6 years ago

    "It's one of the best public transport systems I've seen ever." Really? It's certainly not the worst but I suggest you visit Paris or Tokyo or Singapore or Hong Kong or Melbourne or endless other European cities with public transport systems that put a wealthy country like Australia to shame.

    Sydney's public transport system is run by Bureaucrats and Unions and has nothing to do with servicing the people who pay for it whatsoever. over 6 years ago
