Green Square town centre will feature a network of new streets and cycleways for residents and visitors to walk or ride easily through the area.

Over the next few years the City will complete new streets such as Zetland Avenue making access to the Green Square train station much easier and quicker for residents who live east of Joynton Avenue.

We’re building more cycling routes than in any other part of Sydney with cycling links coming from 4 directions into the town centre.

The City is also reducing the amount of cars and car parking so there’ll be less traffic congestion making Green Square an attractive neighbourhood to visit, live and work.

Bus services travel in all directions while the Green Square railway station puts you within easy reach of the city centre and Sydney Airport – it’s only 1 stop to Central and 2 stops to the airport. For trip planning, maps and ticket info visit

Just a few more train stops away are the best universities and cultural attractions Sydney has to offer.

Light rail

Transport demand in Green Square is growing rapidly. Patronage at Green Square train station has increased by more than 30% each year between 2014 and 2016, while Bourke Street now has one of Sydney’s busiest suburban bus stops. Despite frequent bus services, Green Square bus commuters already experience severe overcrowding.

The City believes a light rail connection between the city centre and Green Square is the best solution for residents travelling between work and home. It’s also a more sustainable option that will reduce traffic in the area.

While transport is a NSW government responsibility, the City is helping plan the project to make sure it’s done well.

Green Square town centre is being designed for the future addition of light rail. We have worked with developers to preserve a corridor through the area for future public transport.

The state government is responsible for bus, light rail and rail planning. We support the delivery of quality public transport for Green Square.

Car sharing

Need a car for shopping or for outings? Car share vehicles are available across the City of Sydney, and can be rented for as little as 1 hour, or for up to 4 days.

With high demand for parking and limited street space, car sharing is the perfect alternative to owning a car – or an economical alternative to a second household car. To find the car nearest you, try this map.
