Paying a fare - using opal cards

Opal Cards are free smart card tickets that you load money onto and use for public transport across NSW. They are the new way to buy a ticket for buses, trains, light rail and ferries. Most paper tickets are being retired by the NSW Government, so save yourself time and money by getting an Opal Card.
Concession Opal cards are available for eligible full-time domestic students. Information on how to apply for these cards and tickets, and how to determine your eligibility is available from Student Central.
If you are an international student, you may apply for an Adult Opal card. If you wish to obtain an Adult or Child Opal card you can do so online or from the UniShop.
