Contactless payment on Sydney public transport

Ditching another card from my wallet. The Opal payment system can now take contactless payment across all Sydney buses, trains, light rail, Metro and ferries.

With full travel benefits :

  • $2 discount for every transfer between modes (train, ferry, bus or light rail) as part of one journey. The Opal Transfer Discount does not apply when transferring between light rail and Sydney Ferries.
  • Half price travel after eight paid journeys in a week.
  • Fares capped daily, weekly and on Sundays.
  • 30% discount on train fares outside peak times.
