Opal card benefits
Opal benefits apply when you travel with an Opal card.
With an Opal card, when you have paid for eight trips in one week (Monday to Sunday), you reach the Weekly Travel Reward. For the rest of that week, your trips will be half price. You must tap on and tap off each time to receive the discount.
Adult Opal card holders get a $2 discount for every transfer between train, ferry, bus or light rail as part of one journey within 60 minutes from the last tap off.
Child/Youth, Gold Senior/Pensioner and Concession Opal card holders get a $1 discount for every transfer between modes.
Once you reach the Weekly Travel Reward of half-price travel, the Opal Transfer Discount is also reduced by 50%.
The Opal Transfer Discount does not apply when transferring between light rail and Sydney Ferries.
