Use your Opal card on Inner West On Demand services, My Fast Ferry and SeaLink/Captain Cook Cruises

From 1 July, you will be able to use your Opal card to pay for On Demand public transport services in Breakfast Point, Burwood, Cabarita, Canada Bay, Concord, Mortlake, Rhodes and Strathfield. Opal is already available on selected ferry trips on My Fast Ferry and SeaLink/Captain Cook Cruises, thanks to OpalPay.

OpalPay is a convenient way to pay your fare, allowing you to use your Opal card for more of your trips. 

To use OpalPay, tap your Opal card onto the operator's point-of-sale device when boarding. You will not need to tap off.

Concession fares are not offered on all routes and services. Using OpalPay, you will be charged the operator’s ticket fare, which is not the same as a standard Opal fare. Check the operator’s fare before you travel to make sure you have sufficient funds on your Opal card to cover the trip.

You can use either an Adult Opal card, Child/Youth Opal card, Gold Senior/Pensioner Opal card or a Concession Opal card to pay with OpalPay, however you may be charged the full adult fare even if you use a concession Opal card. Check with the operator if concession fares are available before you tap to pay with OpalPay.

Look out for ‘OpalPay accepted here’ signs to see if you can pay with Opal.

If travelling by private ferry, you can use the Trip Planner tool to check whether your service accepts OpalPay. ‘OpalPay available’ will be displayed in trip results.
