P&O has introduced a shuttle from Central train station to White Bay cruise terminal in Sydney! The service started in November 2013.

The 20,000+ people who have read my blog, White Bay Wrong Way, and shared it on Facebook (1000+ shares) or read it via Cruise Critic or TripAdvisor, or head it mentioned on radio, knows I have major concerns about the lack of public transport to the White Bay cruise terminal in Sydney. As do thousands of cruisers.
Finally they did something about it.
On the downside, the shuttle is relatively expensive at $15. A taxi costs around $25 from Central train station to White Bay and less than $20 from Town Hall. So it’s cheaper for 2+ people travelling together to take a taxi from Central instead of the shuttle. And that’s most cruise passengers — the majority are couples, families or groups of friends.
