From Today you can pay your fare on any Sydney Ferries or light rail service using a contactless card.
This service has been trialled on the F1 Manly Ferry line and deemed to be a success, with the service being popular amongst tourists and one-off travellers.
You can tap on and tap off at an Opal card reader to pay your fare using most American Express, Mastercard and Visa cards, plus mobile wallets on smartphones, tablets and watches. Fares are the same as an Adult Opal single trip ticket.
You can only use your card or device to tap on for one fare per trip. You cannot pass the card back to someone else to pay a second fare.
Contactless payment will be available at 57 destinations across Sydney including any popular tourist destinations such as Circular Quay, Darling Harbour, Manly, Star Casino and Taronga Zoo.
