Use contactless for Adult Opal benefits and fares
You can now use your contactless-enabled credit, debit or linked device on the Opal network and get all the same fares and travel benefits of an Adult Opal card. Available on metro, train, light rail and ferry services, and coming to bus services soon, contactless payments are another way to pay.
You can use a contactless-enabled American Express, Mastercard or Visa credit or debit card or a device linked to one of these cards to pay for your trip. Simply tap on and tap off at Opal readers with your credit or debit card or linked device to get the same fares and travel benefits of an Adult Opal card.
