What is travel credit?
With Transport Connect, you can earn up to $2 in travel credit every time you transfer within 60 minutes between Opal and On Demand services in The Ponds.
You will need a Transport Connect account to start earning travel credit. Sign up for an Transport Connect account and On Demand travel credit, link your Opal card and add a payment card. Then download the Cooee Busways app from the App Store or Google Play and log in using your Transport Connect account username and password.
Once you've completed these steps, any travel credit you earn will be added to your Transport Connect account. When you have accumulated enough credit, you can use it to pay for your next On Demand trip.
