Opal card types
An Opal card is the easiest and cheapest way to pay for your travel on public transport in Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Illawarra, Central Coast, Newcastle and Hunter regions. If you have a suitable credit card, debit card or mobile device, contactless payments are available on trains, ferry and light rail on the Opal network as an alternative to an Opal card.
Check your eligibility to find out which Opal card is best for you. Children aged 3 years and under travel free.
