Local Transport
This is Sydney's major weakness. Their transport system is terrible. The monorail basically goes in a 200m circle, the train stations are positioned few and far between and it took me 2 hours to get a taxi, 10.00am on a Thursday!
Trains: 8 route systems identified by colour code, yet the main Sydney underground circle runs through Central Station-Town Hall-Wynard-Circular Quay - St James - Museum - and back to Central. Tickets start at $1.90 for a one way trip.
Sydney pass: $85, entitles you to unlimited bus, ferry and central city train travel. www.sta.nsw.gov.au
