Late night transport

Late night transport

Get home safely in the small hours

Most of Sydney's trains stop running between midnight and 4.30am, however there are alternatives in place to help you get home safely when you're out late.

NightRide buses replace Sydney Trains to most stations across the greater Sydney network and some Sydney Buses routes operate late too.

Taxis are available for hire 24/7 and there are secure taxi ranks all over town.

NightRide buses

Sydney Trains services are replaced by NightRide bus services after midnight.

Most NightRide bus services depart from Town Hall station (on George Street, near the corner of Bathurst Street), but there are also services from Central station and Kings Cross.

You can also plan your trip using the Transport for NSW trip planner.

Secure taxi ranks

Secure taxi ranks are staffed by security guards late on Friday and Saturday nights and managed by Transport for NSW.

Visit the Transport Info website to check the hours of operation and location for each secure taxi rank in NSW.

A map of taxi ranks and secure taxi ranks in our area is available on our taxis page.


Many routes in and out of the city operate early on Saturday and Sunday mornings, for customers who like to stay out all night.
