Sydney's Public Transport

Going to the Sydney Running Festival? Avoid traffic with public transport and an Opal card. Opal cards are smartcard tickets you keep, reload and reuse to pay for your travel on trains, ferries, buses and light rail – anywhere within the Opal network.

Adult and Child/Youth Opal cards are available over the counter from more than 2,100 Opal retailers. Visit to find your nearest Opal retailer.

Adult, Child/Youth, Senior/Pensioner and Concession Opal cards are also available from or by calling 13 67 25 (13 OPAL).

Remember, proof of eligibility is required for Gold and Concession Opal cards.
