Pay your fare the easy way
Simply tap on and tap off with your contactless card or device on the Opal reader to pay the Adult fare and receive all the same travel benefits. Contactless payments are available on all public transport in the Opal network.
How it works
Same Adult Fare, same Opal benefits
- $2 discount for every transfer between modes as part of one journey
- Half price travel after eight paid journeys in a week
- Fares capped daily, weekly and on weekends
- 30% discount on metro/train, bus and light rail fares outside peak times
Look for the contactless symbol on your card
If your American Express, Mastercard or Visa credit or debit card shows the contactless payment symbol , you can use it to pay for your travel. If you’re unsure whether your card is contactless-enabled, check with your card issuer.
Separate your cards
Always separate your cards when you tap on and tap off so your preferred card is charged. Watch out for card clash
Always tap on and tap off
Tap on at the start and tap off at the end of each trip to ensure you are travelling with a valid ticket. If you are caught travelling without a valid ticket or not paying the correct fare, you may be issued with a fine of $200 (Maximum $550).
Use the same card or device for all your travel
Make sure you tap on and tap off with the same card or linked device at the start and end of your trip. Use the same card or linked device for your travel all week to receive the same travel benefits and rewards of an Adult Opal card.
