Opal Card

About Opal

Introducing Opal

Opal makes getting around on public transport easy. To travel anywhere from the Blue Mountains to Bondi, or Goulburn to Scone, all you need is an Opal card.

What is an Opal card?

Opal cards are smartcard tickets that you keep, reload and reuse to pay for travel on public transport. Simply add value to your Opal card then tap on and tap off to pay your fares on trains, buses, ferries and light rail – anywhere within the Opal network.

As well as the lowest single fares, Opal cards have lots of benefits for regular travellers.
