Transport Information: Sydney Derby


Thousands of Hyundai A-League fans will be heading to Moore Park for the first Sydney Derby of the 2017/18 season. Traffic will be heavy and parking will be limited – leave the car at home and catch a shuttle bus to the precinct from Central station or you can also walk via Foveaux or Devonshire streets.

Valid pre-purchased match tickets include travel to and from Allianz Stadium on:

  • Train services (bounded by Bomaderry, Goulburn, Bathurst and Dungog stations).
  • Regular and special event shuttle buses.
  • Sydney Ferries services.
  • Light rail services.

Remember to keep your ticket safe for your return journey or you’ll need to use your Opal card, as you must have a valid ticket when travelling on public transport. Your match ticket is valid on public transport until 04:00 the following day.

Note: an additional station access fee applies for travel to or from Domestic and International Airport stations. Your event ticket does not include the access fee, so if you’re travelling from these stations you’ll need to pay the train station access fee.


The closest station to Allianz Stadium is Central. Change at Central for a Moore Park shuttle bus or you can also walk to Moore Park via Foveaux Street or Devonshire Street and the Albert ‘Tibby’ Cotter Walkway. See our Moore Park walking route map (pdf 160KB) to help find your way.

A special supporters train will run for Wanderers fans leaving from Parramatta at 17:45, stopping at Granville at 17:52, Strathfield at 18:04 then arriving at Central by 18:16.


Trackwork is carried out on an ongoing basis to maintain the safety, reliability, and efficiency of the Sydney Trains network. Trackwork may affect how you travel to and from events. Check travel alerts or use the Trip Planner.

Return services will run from the Moore Park Bus Station back to Central from 21:30 until 23:00.

Bus services will be busy so fans are encouraged to consider walking to the precinct via Foveaux or Devonshire streets to avoid delays.
