Entry to the OPT by car or taxi is from George Street to Argyle Street, Circular Quay. While a cruise vessel is in port, passenger set down and pick up is available in the terminal precinct but parking is NOT allowed on-site. Circular Quay train (City Rail) and ferry platforms (Harbour City Ferries) are an easy two-minute walk to the OPT.
