Getting around

Moving around town in 2030 is going to be very different to the chore it is now. The City of Sydney is the light rail champion and because it is key to solving our transport problems, we’re providing $220 million in support of the NSW Government’s efforts to build a light rail network down George Street and beyond.

With the major boulevarde in Central City freed up from congested traffic, there will be more room for walking and cycling around town. This, combined with other measures we are taking to change the way people travel to and across the City, will have a trickle down effect to the point where walking or cycling becomes the preferred easy transportation option for most people.

The Council will also continue to encourage car sharing and set aside designated parking spaces for shared vehicles. We’ve also created hundreds of parking spaces for motorcycles and scooters, as riding is a convenient way to travel around the city, and bikes produce less emissions too.

Visit the City of Sydney website for more information on our work to encourage people to choose motorcycles and scooters and ride safely in the city.
