During peak hours, the AirportLink travels from Sydney’€™s domestic and international airports to the city every 10 minutes. Shuttle bus services also link the airports to the city, inner west, and eastern suburbs.

If you’d rather enjoy the freedom of choosing your own route, try hiring a car. Road tolls are charged on Sydney’€™s orbital motorways as well as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Tunnel.

Although some accept cash, most rely on electronic tags. If your vehicle doesn’t have an electronic tag, eMU Passes are sold at participating petrol stations and allow you to pay tolls with your credit card.
