Trains travel to and from Sydney Domestic and International Airports between 5am and midnight, 7 days a week.

The train station is located directly under the airport terminals and there are also taxi ranks at both airport terminals.

To transfer between Sydney Domestic Airport and Sydney International Airport, you can catch the T8 Airport South Line train service.

To catch a train, you will need to get an Opal card or purchase an Opal single ticket. You can also pay using a contactless credit or debit card or mobile device to pay an Adult Opal fare.

For most people, using an Opal card or contactless payment card to pay is the best option for value, flexibility and convenience. You can get Adult and Child/Youth Opal cards, top up the balance of an existing Opal card and purchase Opal single trip tickets at airport train stations. Please note that if you need to top up at the Airport, a minimum top up amount of $35 applies.

Use the Trip Planner to plan your public transport trip. Fares are shown with trip plan results.

Recommend getting Trip View App on your Mobile Devices to help you plan ahead.

Opal is the smartcard ticketing system used to pay for travel on public transport in Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, the Hunter and the Illawarra. Add value before you travel and tap on and off to pay your fare.

How to get an Opal card

Depending on which card you need, there are a number of ways to get an Opal card. Adult and Child/Youth Opal cards are available over the counter from Opal retailers, including convenience stores and newsagents, while concession cards must be applied for online.

There is no charge for an Opal card, however a minimum top up value of $20 for an adult card, or $10 for a child or concession card, applies at retailers or when using top up machines. Top up amounts of $10 for adult and $5 for child or concession are available when topping up online.

You can also use contactless payments as an alternative to travelling with an Adult Opal card. You can also purchase Opal single trip tickets, however prices are more expensive than using an Opal card and some stations, stops and wharves do not sell them.

Taxis & Vehicle Hire Services

You can hail a taxi on major streets at most times during the day or night, but a more reliable option is to call ahead to a taxi service. Taxis will charge a base rate for each ride, and the cost will increase with distance and time travelled. It is considered polite to give your driver a small tip. Some taxi companies in Sydney include Sliver Taxi Service or 13cabs.

Services such as Uber and Ola are also active in Sydney.
