Getting around

Sydney has a range of accessible services to allow as many people as possible to make their way around the city centre.

Accessibility map (beta)

Understanding where potential barriers such as stairs or steep hills are, or access features such as the nearest accessible toilet or taxi rank is, provides people with disability greater confidence to visit the city.

More importantly, it lets people with disability participate in numerous activities with more independence and dignity.

Our online accessibility map, presently in beta, provides information about key access features such as mobility parking spaces and accessible public toilets, potential barriers such as stairs and steep and moderate inclines.

Please note the disclaimer relating to this map. Current light rail construction works in George Street may not be reflected in the map and users should refer to current works information.

Tactile and braille street signs

More than 2,100 tactile and braille street signs have been installed across the City's local area.

The tactile aluminium panels feature street names and building numbers in both braille and large, raised lettering to allow touch-reading by people who are blind and close range reading for people with low vision.

The tactile and braille signs are placed next to push buttons at every signalised pedestrian crossing across the City's local area.

Read our accessible user guide for the tactile and braille street signs.

Mobility parking

If you hold a mobility parking permit, you can enjoy free parking for a certain period of time in designated parking zones.

This applies to parking zones with meters or ticket machines.

Accessible public transport

Public transport services in NSW are constantly being improved to help residents and visitors have a smooth and safe journey.

There are a range of accessible public transport options.
