This is spin-off from the "too many buses" syndrome when buses replaced
trams and now that at least one CBD tram route is back, George St is
off-limits for buses. Only the eastern and south-eastern bus routes
terminate at Circular Quay. The inner west and south-west routes terminate
at Martin Place. Of course, it has its historical precedent when trams used
to terminate at Bridge St during the 19th century and there was a walk up
or down hill to get to and from the ferries.
