The Sydney Light Rail

Sydney has plenty to offer to its visitors, regardless of whether they visit on a regular basis or they are in Australia for the first time. But there is more than one way to travel around Sydney, and luckily there is one very environmentally friendly way that you can do it, thanks to the Light Rail system that runs from Lilyfield right across to Chinatown. No matter where you want to go, you’re never far away from the best locations when you rely on the Light Rail system to get you there.

Three and a half million people take advantage of the Light Rail system to find their way around Sydney every year, and that makes a big difference to the quality of life in the city. That may sound a little extreme, but the fact is that the Light Rail is a very green way to travel.

Because the route runs through and past many of the major areas of interest in the city, there is no need to use a car to get to where you need to be. That means there are far less cars polluting the roads than there would be otherwise. The Light Rail is also very quiet – unlike the rumbling noise of all the cars, buses and other vehicles that some people do still use.
