Metro Monorail and Metro Light Rail are two fun and quite unusual transport systems. 

Metro Monorail is a delightful experience for every tourist, offering a bird’s eye view of arguably the world’s most beautiful city, taking in the ‘must see’ hubs of Darling Harbour, Chinatown and the central shopping and business districts. 

Metro Monorail is one of only a few elevated transport systems in the world that operates through the heart of a major city.

Opened in July 1988 as a Bicentennial gift to Sydney, it is now one of the most popular ways of getting about, moving over 4 million passengers per year.

Monorail also delivers hundreds of Sydney’s commuters daily from Pyrmont and Ultimo to the centre of the City.


Metro Light Rail is Sydney's newest transport system and is, without a doubt, the most pleasant way to travel from the city to Sydney’s inner west.  Opening in August 1997 and later extending in August 2000, Metro Light Rail is the environmentally sound transport system of the future.

Green, clean, quiet and convenient, Metro Light Rail transports more than 3.5 million passengers a year to key destinations around Sydney like Star City Casino & Hotel, Sydney Fish Market and the Hub of Central Station.

Both transport systems are owned by Australian company, Metro Transport Sydney.
