Penrith is a city about 50km to the west of Sydney, and about 67km from the airport. That means that getting from Sydney Airport to Penrith, and back, can take some time on public transport. Trains and buses make plenty of stops between both destinations, and, depending on where you’re going, you may even need to transfer from one service to another. If you’re on a tight schedule, that might not be the best way to get from Sydney Airport to Penrith. So, what are the alternatives? There are taxis, but over long distances they can be prohibitively expensive. They can also take a while to find at Sydney Airport, where lines at the taxi rank can get long.
