Buses from ABC Airport with Bus Routes and Times

Sydney Airport is located approximately 8 km from the Central Business District of Sydney, the largest city of Australia found in New South Wales. The city’s airport is also the largest in Australia, handling over 44 million passengers per annum, and recognized as the Kingsford Smith Airport, or the Mascot Airport, due to its location in this suburb. Sydney Airport is easily accessible by road, and there are a number of transport options to and from the airport terminal buildings. Passengers can travel by bus, train or taxi, however, the bus services from Sydney Airport are the most cost effective form of transport available. Buses also provide a valuable link between the airport passenger terminals.

Sydney Airport comprises of three terminal buildings, named as Terminal 1, Terminal 2 and Terminal 3. Terminal 1 is the airport’s international terminal, and is located at quite a distance from the two domestic terminals, which are within easy walking distance of one another. Passengers needing to reach Terminal 1 will therefore require one of the transfer options available. The T-Bus is the airport shuttle that travels between Terminal 1 and the domestic Terminal 2, and operates at frequent times during the morning, and every half an hour in the afternoons up until 20:00. The bus stops for the T-Bus are found on the arrival levels, at Bus Bay 21 at the international terminal nearby McDonalds, and at Bus Bay 3 nearby the baggage reclaim carousel 6 at Terminal 2. Passengers in Terminal 3 will need to walk the short distance to Terminal 2 in order to make use of the T-Bus. Passengers will be dropped off at the departure levels of the buildings, and the journey between the terminals will take up to ten minutes. Further information is available online, at the service provider’s website, of http://www.carbridge.com.au.

Passengers transferring between a Qantas domestic flight and a Qantas international flight, or vice versa, may be able to use the Qantas Seamless Transfer, and passengers transferring between two Virgin Airlines or codeshare partner airlines may be eligible to use the Virgin Blue Seamless Transfer.
