Opal peak and off-peak metro/train fares

Opal metro/train fares are discounted by 30 per cent when you travel outside of peak times on the Opal network when you use your Opal card or a contactless payment.

From 6 July, you will receive a temporary 50% discount for off peak travel on metro/train, bus and light rail services. Peak travel times will also change. Find out more.

Your fare will be calculated from the time when you tap on.

There is no off-peak discount when using an Opal single ticket.
