No Monorail, what now?

Have just retruned from a mini holiday in Sydney, I use the monorail a lot to get around the centre of the city and see it is being discontinued in June. Will there be additional buses? I mainly need to get from the Darling Harbour area or Central station into the city.

Best and nicest way to get from Darling Harbour to CBD is by ferry.

As much as an "eyesore" and "embarrassment" it was to certain Sydneysiders, I never saw it empty. I won a 100 trip travelpass on it years ago (honestly, what a score!), and it's taken me 10 years to use them up. I've only got 4 trips left on it. haha.
I'm unsure of buses, so realy the only thing is the light rail which takes you to central, then you'd have to get the train up to town hall or wynyard.
Walking is still the quickest option... if you're into that sort of thing.

Would also add, here's the government public transport site. Very handy.
I've added the link for the free cbd shuttle - it runs from Central Station to Circular Quay.

Pyrmont Bridge leads up to Market St heading towards pitt st.
The bridge near IMAX leads up to Park St... towards the front of the QVB & Town Hall.
The annoying thing is it's a bit of a climb up the hill, but that's about the most direct route to take.
Gotta think that catching a ferry from Darling Harbour round to Circular Quay, while picturesque, is a bit of a waste of time and money (especially on the weekend when crowds are at a premium).
Best options I can give you as a CBD worker.
