Changes to off-peak fares from 5 October

Opal off-peak fares will change from Monday 5 October 2020. The temporary 50% off-peak travel discount is returning to the normal 30% discount.

Prior to July, the off-peak discount was only available for travel on metro and train. Transport for NSW will be extending the 30% off-peak discount to include metro, train, bus and light rail on an ongoing basis.

Other changes introduced in July will remain in place, including:

  • Extended weekday peak periods
    • Sydney metro, train, bus and light rail: 6.30am-10am and 3pm-7pm
    • NSW TrainLink intercity services: 6am-10am and 3pm-7pm
  • $8.05 cap on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays
  • Increased peak fare for 0-3km bus and light rail trips

Opal benefits will also remain the same, including:

  • $2.50 unlimited daily travel for Senior/Pensioner Opal card holders
  • Weekday and weekly travel caps
  • Half-price fares after eight paid journeys in one week
