The Sydney Opera House is a six-minute walk to Circular Quay which is regularly served by public buses, trains and ferries to Circular Quay.

Changes to the passenger drop-off system

To ensure the security, safety and enjoyment of patrons and visitors, the Opera House has implemented a new system to remove almost all remaining vehicle movements from the Forecourt. 

Visitors and patrons with accessibility requirements arriving by taxi or private car can be dropped at the designated point near the Macquarie Street Gatehouse where Opera House staff are on hand to arrange transfers to the building via a wheelchair-accessible shuttle service (Monday – Friday, daytime only).

For those attending evening and weekend performances, an alternative underground drop-off and pick-up point is in operation (as required, based on performance schedule).

All other taxis and private vehicles will continue to drop-off at the designated area near the Gatehouse and people leaving the precinct will be directed to the taxi rank on Macquarie Street.

The free Courtesy Bus that runs between Circular Quay and the Opera House is wheelchair accessible and will continue to be granted Forecourt access for drop-offs and pick-ups for matinee and evening performances.

The new system will continue to be reviewed based on feedback and operational requirements. We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we implement these important changes.

Courtesy Bus

Designed for elderly and less mobile customers. Seating is limited and available on a first come, first served basis. The bus runs between Circular Quay at Stand B on Alfred Street (under the Cahill Expressway) and the Vehicle Concourse. Please note that there is no bus service for any theatres on Sunday evenings.
