The Sinking City Fast Travel Phone Booth Locations

Need to get around the city without walking hundreds of miles? We show you every single phone booth in Oakmont for fast traveling between quests!

Get ready to develop some serious callouses on your feet in The Sinking City as your troubled detective searches for answers to a mysterious bout of madness plaguing Massachusetts.

Not only are there no quest markers with a big blip on the map telling you where to go to solve any given case, there aren’t even house numbers, so you have to find your own way in this game based on landmarks and street signs.

If you don’t want to spend hours re-treading the same sections, you’ll need to find the fast travel phone booths positioned in each district.

After leaving the port and starting the open world portion of the game, I strongly recommend traversing the city to unlock fast travel phone booths and visit the various archive locations around Oakmont before going  to the Expedition Headquarters for the main quest.

 Phone booths are how you get around quickly

To put it mildly, Oakmont is big, confusing, and unforgiving to outsiders.

If you familiarize yourself with the layout, have several phone booths open to utilize for quick movement, and figure out which buildings let you research what type of quest info, you won’t be nearly as frustrated when trying to complete various quests later.

As a bonus, you get experience for finding new locations, so you can head into the side and main quests with a few extra skill points for holding extra crafting resources and staying sane longer.

Let’s dive into all the fast travel locations in The Sinking City!
