Just after 2pm on February 5, the man performed a lewd act on a bus between Enmore and Redfern in front of a passenger before getting off on Cleveland Street, Redfern, police said.
The matter was reported to police and officers from the police transport command started an investigation.
Police say the incident is linked to other sex acts committed on buses since February.
The first incident occurred on February 11 when a man boarded a bus at King Street, Newtown, about 1.50pm and got off at Castlereagh Street near Liverpool.
About 9pm the same day, a man boarded the bus at King Street and got off at George Street, near Central Station.
Then, about 6.30pm on March15, a man boarded a bus near Museum station and got off at Parramatta Road near Buckland Street.
Police have released CCTV images of the man they want to speak to about the incidents.
He is described as being of Caucasian appearance, aged in his 60s, of thin build, with greying black hair and a grey beard.
He is shown wearing either an orange or lime green T-shirt, brown pants and white or blue shoes. He wears a red patterned hat with the graphic “AUS” written on it and a white face mask.
