    State Transit operates Moore Park Special Event Buses during major events at the Moore Park precinct, including the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) and Allianz Stadium. 

    Buses operate before and after games or concerts and normally display Route 1 on their destination board at the front of the bus. Buses normally leave from Chalmers Street outside Central Station arriving at the Moore Park Bus Station. For some special events, Special Event Buses also leave from Circular Quay (Route 3).

    In some instances, such as Sydney Swans AFL or Waratahs Super 12 Rugby matches, special Park and Ride services also operate.  Check for specific event details.
