From Monday 1 August 2016, paper tickets will no longer be sold or accepted on trains, buses, ferries and light rail within the Opal network.
To travel on public transport in Sydney and surrounding regions, you will need an Opal card or an Opal single bus ticket.
If you don’t have your Opal card, you will be able to purchase an Opal single bus ticket from the driver on board buses (except on pre-paid services).
