Results are estimates of travel times, toll costs and vehicle efficiency calculations for a standard passenger car and traffic lights avoided. Individual results may vary based on the type of vehicle you drive, your specific origin and destination, and traffic conditions at your time of travel. For information on planned works on Transurban toll roads please visit the traffic and alerts page or for information on other Sydney roads visit www.livetraffic.com.

  • Disclaimer

    Travel times are predictions based on data from the Google Maps Directions API. Individual travel times, alternative trips and travel savings may vary based on your specific origin, destination and traffic conditions at your time of travel. Tolled trips are example routes only and do not reflect all toll road entry and exits. Depicted start points and end points are general in nature and provided for comparison purposes only.

    Trip information is based on 3rd party information from the Google Maps Directions API. If you are planning a future trip, the displayed trip will not take into account traffic disruptions due to scheduled maintenance and planned works. For information on planned works on Transurban toll roads please visit the traffic and alerts page or for information on other Sydney roads visit www.livetraffic.com

    Tolled trip may not be the fastest route, depending on actual traffic conditions. There may be discrepancies in actual conditions experienced by road users.

    Toll costs are based on the trip cost for a single direction trip for a Tag account for a standard car. The price of your trip will depend on how far you travel, the type of vehicle you drive and the account or pass you choose. Price may also depend on the time and day of travel. Use our toll calculator to quickly estimate the cost of your trips on Sydney toll roads based for your individual travel needs and vehicle type.

    Fuel and CO2 calculations are based on formulas extracted from vehicle emissions modelling software COPERT Australia, utilising distance and time information from Google Maps Directions API to calculate travel speed. Results represent a typical petrol passenger car.

    Traffic light data is sourced from © OpenStreetMap contributors, and is licensed under the Open Data Commons Open Database License (ODbL). Traffic light counts are based on intersection traffic lights. Traffic light data is an estimate only and variances may occur, particularly if the trip includes a tunnel (which does not contain traffic lights).

  • Travel calculations
    Tolled trip and Alternative trip

    Tolled trips are example routes only, and represent trips that incorporate a toll road(s) (Tolled trip). Alternative trips refer to the alternative route related to the selected Tolled trip as determined by Google Maps Directions API (Alternative trip). Alternative trips may change over time based on Google Maps Directions API. Alternative trips suggested by Google Maps Directions API may incorporate another toll road (different to the Tolled trip identified by the Trip Compare tool) or reflect an entirely un-tolled route.

    Travel times are based on time of departure from the relevant origins of the Tolled trip and the Alternative trip. Actual conditions experienced by road users may differ from the estimates provided.

    Location labels

    Start point and end point labels are general in nature, and location names have been used to provide a common reference for users.

    Toll costs

    Toll costs are based on the trip cost for a single direction trip for a Tag account for a standard car. Motorbikes, light and heavy commercial vehicles may be charged at a rate that is different to the estimate provided in this tool. Toll cost displayed in the Trip Compare tool for the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Harbour Tunnel may be higher than the actual toll cost depending on the time and day of travel. The Trip Compare tool displays the highest toll cost for Sydney Harbour Bridge and Sydney Harbour Tunnel. Refer to our toll calculator to estimate cost of your trips based on your individual travel needs, time/day of travel and vehicle type.

    Changing time and day of travel

    By default, the Trip Compare tool displays the current travel times for the selected trips, including current traffic conditions. When a user adjusts the time and day of travel from ‘Now’ to ‘Later’, travel times are based on the predicted future travel times provided by Google Maps Directions API. If you are planning a future trip, the displayed trip will not take into account traffic disruptions due to scheduled maintenance and planned works.

    Vehicle efficiency

    Vehicle fuel and greenhouse gas estimates are based on formulas extracted from vehicle emissions modelling software COPERT Australia. This method is consistent with what Transurban uses each year in its annual public Sustainability Report to estimate customer vehicle emissions. Comparisons take into account trip distance and travel time information from Google Maps Directions API to calculate the speed for each Tolled trip and Alternative trip. Results represent a typical petrol passenger car. Actual fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions will vary for individual vehicle models and driving behaviour.
