What is 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.

Opal cards are smartcard tickets that you keep, top up 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 metro, trains, buses, ferries and light rail – anywhere within the Opal network.
