Pitt Street Station
Main station features
Pitt Street Station is strategically located at the junction of Sydney’s southern CBD and the Midtown retail precinct, close to mixed employment, residential, entertainment, cultural and events-based activities within the southern Sydney CBD and Chinatown.
The metro station at Pitt Street serves the retail areas on George and Pitt streets, the civic and entertainment uses on George Street and the emerging southern Sydney CBD residential developments between Park Street and Belmore Park. The station also provides relief to Town Hall Station, and allows interchange onto other modes of public transport including light rail and buses.
The station includes:
- new bike parking on Park and Bathurst streets
- existing bus stops close to the station retained on Park and Castlereagh streets
- existing taxi bays close to the station retained on Castlereagh and Pitt streets
- wayfinding signage and metro information to be provided
- enhancement of pedestrian infrastructure around the station to be refined in consultation with Transport for NSW and City of Sydney Council.

The station is located below Pitt and Castlereagh streets, south of the Park Street intersection and north of the Bathurst Street intersection.
