Question:

I am new to Sydney. What is the best way to get to University?

Answer:

Macquarie University's transport webpage has information on the different transport options available: walking, cycling, driving and public transport.

You will also find details about bike hubs, parking areas and walking tracks, as well as links to maps and guides.

Transport for NSW (TfNSW) provide concession Opal cards for eligible tertiary students.  You may be eligible for transport concession fares on public transport if you:

    •    are an Australian Citizen or hold an Australian Permanent Residency visa, and
    •    are a full-time student, enrolled in internal classes (not external mode)

Have a look at the TfNSW's transport concession page to check your eligibility.

Information regarding International students travel discount is available on TfNSW's page.

If you are driving in, you may also want to consider carpooling and/or obtaining a student parking permit.
