Opal card types
Opal cards are smartcard tickets that you use to pay for travel on public transport in Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, the Hunter and the Illawarra.
Check your eligibility to find out which Opal card is best for you. Children aged 3 years and under travel free.
If you have a contactless-enabled credit or debit card or linked device, contactless payments are available on the Opal network as an alternative to an Adult Opal card.
