State Transit Route 433 operates between City Central Railway and Balmain Gladstone Park via Rozelle, Harold Park, Glebe and Broadway. It is one of the routes that will be transferred to Transit Systems on July 1st as part of the Region 6 privatisation.

Route 433 has been operating since the 1950s, when it was one of many routes introduced to replace the tram system. It has previously operated to City Millers Point and Balmain East Wharf. As part of the major bus network overhaul related to the construction of the CSELR in October 2015, the decision was made to truncate at Route 433 at City Central Railway due to poor patronage through the Northern half of the CBD.

The service operates between 5am and 11pm daily. During peak hours it has a frequency of 5-10 minutes. At al other time it has a frequency out 20 minutes. The service is operated by buses with Scania chassis and Bustech VST bodywork from State Transit’s Leichhardt Depot.
