Important travel advice

With venue capacities increasing, fans are encouraged to consider all the available travel options ahead of time as public transport continues to operate at a reduced capacity to maintain physical distancing across the network.

If you have to catch public transport, wear a mask, allow extra travel time and plan ahead by checking real-time capacity indicators as you may need to wait for the next service with available physical distancing capacity. Remember to look for the ‘green dots’ on-board services to find the safest places to sit or stand.

Wearing a face mask while travelling on public transport is mandatory in Greater Sydney, Blue Mountains, Central Coast and Wollongong areas.

Opal

You can use an Opal card for all modes of public transport in Sydney and surrounding regions, including metro, trains, buses, ferries and light rail.

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 a contactless-enabled American Express, Mastercard or Visa debit or credit card, or a linked device, you can use it to pay for your travel by tapping on and tapping off at Opal card readers. Available on all public transport, contactless payments are another way to pay on the Opal network. Adult Opal fare pricing applies and you will receive Opal benefits, including daily and weekly fare caps.

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

Remember to maintain physical distancing when travelling on transport. Check real-time capacity indicators on available services when planning your trip. You may need to wait for the next service if physical distancing capacity is not available. Learn more about real-time capacity information.
