Do infants count?

Due to new NSW RTA regulations, Infants and children are not allowed to seat on the lap of the parent and therefore do count in all vehicles as one person as they take up a seat on the bus. We strongly recommend parents take their own child seats to ensure adequate safety and to comply with new regulations. As with car rental policy it is also the parent’s responsibility to fit the seat. We do not always have the facility to provide infant or child seats in our vehicles, but as an alternative, child seat can be organised with private transfer for additional price, please enquire within.

What is the difference between private transfer and general shuttle service?

Airport connect offers general shuttle services from Sydney International / Domestic airport to the City Hotels and it takes about an hour to reach your destination due to additional stops at the hotels to drop off other people. Private transfer will take you straight to your destination without any stops. One of our drivers will meet you at the meeting point at the Airport with appropriate sign and walk you to the bus.
Prices for each transfer are different
