Contactless payments for Sydney metro, trains, light rail and ferries

Tickets and Options

Sydney's transport system now has a variety of prepay options. The easiest way to make the most of Sydney’s growing transport network is to use an Opal Card. Opal Cards are a smart touch-based system that allows travel on Sydney’s greater metropolitan services. The card can be used on trains, buses, ferries and light rail. Cards are free from most convenience stores, selected stations, and ferry wharves. To ensure enough balance to travel hassle-free, load money as you go or set up an auto top up online. Always remember to tap on and off to avoid fines.  For more information on how to purchase tickets and plan your trip visit Transport NSW.
