Contactless is a quick and easy way to pay for your trip on public transport on the Opal network.
If you have an American Express, Mastercard or Visa credit or debit card or a linked device, you can use it to pay for your travel by tapping on and tapping off at Opal readers. Just look for the contactless payment symbol . Contactless payments are available on metro, train, light rail and ferry services, and coming to bus services soon.
You will receive the same travel benefits of an Adult Opal card and pay an Adult fare when you tap on and tap off consistently with the same credit card, debit card or linked device. Find out more about paying the right fare.
If you’re unsure whether your card is contactless-enabled, check with your card issuer.
Always separate your cards when you tap on and tap off so your preferred card is charged.
