Metro Light Rail, Sydney
On one of our excursions into the CBD of Sydney during our recent holidays we took the Metro Light Rail to the Sydney Fish Markets. Until we took this tram I was not aware that Sydney had a light rail system. Metro Transport runs the Metro Light Rail and they also run the Sydney Monorail which intersects with the light rail and then loops through parts of the CBD.
We didn’t take the monorail on this trip; you have to leave some fun for our next holiday in Sydney. We took the train from Artarmon, which is a five minute walk from our son’s home. We alighted at Central Station and then caught the light rail to the Sydney Fish Markets. These trams are quiet, quick, clean and arrive every few minutes throughout the day. On some sections the trams run for 24 hours a day every day of the year. My only criticism is that they are quite expensive to the length of the ride. Still, it saved a lot of walking.
The track goes from Central Railway Station and terminates at Lilyfield, going through Haymarket, Darling Harbour, Pyrmont Bay and Glebe.
