Opal

You can use an Opal card for all modes of public transport in Sydney and surrounding regions, including trains, buses, ferries and light rail. There is also a Travel Cap of $2.70 on Sundays.

More ways to pay

If you have an American Express, Mastercard or Visa debit or credit card which displays the contactless payment symbol, or linked device, you can use it to pay for your travel by tapping on and off at Opal card readers on trains, light rail and Sydney Ferries. Keep in mind if you’re travelling by bus you still need to use an Opal card. Standard (peak) Adult Opal fare pricing applies. If you consistently use the same contactless card or linked device to tap on and tap off, you may qualify for Opal daily, weekly and Sunday fare caps but no other Opal benefits apply.

Summer Holiday timetable

During the summer holidays including Christmas and New Year, Sydney trains, buses, ferries and light rail services will run to a changed timetable. Some services will run to weekend timetables on weekdays and other services, including those to major events, beaches and shopping centres, will run more frequently. Check out all the Summer Holiday timetable details and plan your trip before you travel.

The closest station to the Sydney Cricket Ground is Central. From Central you can change for a shuttle bus service leaving from Eddy Avenue or walk to Moore Park via Foveaux Street or Devonshire Street and the Albert 'Tibby' Cotter Walkway. Use our Moore Park walking route map (pdf 233KB) to help find your way.

Trackwork

Trackwork is taking place on Thursday 27 December and may affect how you travel to and from the event:

  • T1 Western Line and T2 Inner West & Leppington Line: Buses replace trains between Lidcombe and Strathfield.
  • T7 Olympic Park Line: Trains run between Olympic Park and Lidcombe/Leppington or Penrith.
  • Blue Mountains Line: Buses replace trains between Blacktown and Central.

To note: As of Sunday 30 September, the Epping to Chatswood rail line has temporarily closed for upgrades for around 7 months before Sydney Metro Northwest services begin in 2019. The new high-frequency bus service, Station Link, replaces trains between Epping and Chatswood. For more information on Station Link, visit transportnsw.info.

Trackwork is carried out on an ongoing basis to maintain the safety, reliability and efficiency of the Sydney Trains network. Trackwork may affect how you travel to and from events. For the latest information, check travel alerts and trackwork or use the Trip Planner.

Moore Park bus loop changes: from Saturday 22 December, Moore Park event shuttle buses will drop off and pick up from the northern end of Driver Avenue instead of the Moore Park bus station. This is to allow for the Moore Park East Reconfiguration project currently underway over the next six months which includes the construction of a new bus terminal. Signage, wayfinding staff and bus marshals will be on-site to assist with the change.

Express Moore Park shuttle buses will run between Central and Moore Park (Route 1).

Shuttle bus times will be available closer to the date.

Alternatively, a number of regular bus services stop along Anzac Parade near the precinct including routes 339, 372, 374, 376, 391, 393 and 395. 

Anzac Pde bus stop access changes: If you're catching the bus home from Anzac Parade, from 12 November there are changes to the way you access bus stops as the pedestrian crossing on the Moore Park Busway connecting Anzac Pde with MacArthur Ave is closed. To get to Anzac Pde bus stops for services towards Coogee and Maroubra, use the pathway (Gregory Ave) underneath the Albert 'Tibby' Cotter Walkway to cross the Busway instead and head down the Anzac Pde footpath to the bus stop.

See the Anzac Pde Moore Park busway walking route map (pdf 164KB) for more details.
