Opal

You can use an Opal card for all modes of public transport in Sydney and surrounding regions, including trains, buses, ferries and light rail. There is also a Travel Cap of $2.80 on Sundays.

Remember to top up your Opal card before you travel to avoid waiting in line at top-up machines. You can top up your card online or at an Opal retailer.

More ways to pay

If you have an American Express, Mastercard or Visa debit or credit card which displays the contactless payment symbol, or linked device, you can use it to pay for your travel by tapping on and off at Opal card readers on trains, light rail and Sydney Ferries. Keep in mind if you’re travelling by bus you still need to use an Opal card. Standard (peak) Adult Opal fare pricing applies. If you consistently use the same contactless card or linked device to tap on and tap off, you may qualify for Opal daily, weekly and Sunday fare caps but no other Opal benefits apply.

Sydney Metro services are high-frequency, driverless trains running between Tallawong Station and Chatswood Station.

Metro services start running from the early morning. Fans will need to change at Epping instead of Chatswood to connect with train services towards Central due to T1 North Shore Line trackwork between Gordon and Wynyard. On the return trip catch a T9 Northern Line train from Central and change at Epping to connect with metro services.

Last services from Chatswood to Tallawong leave at 12.45am on Thursday nights and at 1.45am on Friday and Saturday nights.

You can use your Opal card or accepted contactless payment method on Sydney Metro services.

The closest station to the Sydney Cricket Ground is Central.

If you’re travelling from the North Shore allow extra travel time as trackwork is taking place with buses replacing trains between Gordon and North Sydney, or Wynyard. Fans can catch a rail replacement bus to Wynyard or North Sydney to connect with trains to Central.

On the return trip, fans heading back to upper North Shore stations between Gordon and Chatswood should head to Wynyard to catch a rail replacement bus. Fans heading back to lower North Shore stations between Chatswood and Waverton can catch the train to North Sydney to change for a rail replacement bus to continue their trip.
