Sydney, Here’s Your Travel Guide For ANZAC Day
We're being advised to jump on a bus or train, if heading into the CBD for Anzac Day commemorations on Wednesday.
50 thousand people are expected to attend commemorations marking the final year of the Anzac Centenary.
Travel on public transport to and from Anzac Day events is free for current and former Australian Defence Force personnel in uniform, wearing their medals, or with proof of military service. Veterans’ families and carers also travel free.
“Trains will arrive at Wynyard and Martin Place in plenty of time for the Dawn Service which starts at 4:30am,” said a spokesperson from the Transport Management Centre.
“If you are planning to arrive for the start of the Anzac Day March at 9am, catch a train to Town Hall, St James or Museum.”
Extra early morning buses will run on key routes from the Northern Beaches, Lower North Shore, North West, Eastern Suburbs and Inner West.
Roads will start closing from 2:30am, including sections of Castlereagh Street, Pitt Street and George Street near Martin Place.
From 6am, major roads will close along and near the March route from Martin Place to Hyde Park South. Closures include sections of Elizabeth Street, Castlereagh Street, Pitt Street, King Street, Market Street, Hunter Street, Bathurst Street, Park Street and Liverpool Street.
Most roads are due to reopen by 4pm, except part of Pitt Street near Martin Place which is due to reopen at 6pm.
