Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian said thousands of customers catching bus services on all 24 routes between 556 and 599 can now access the cheaper, faster, more convenient Opal Card service.

“These bus services cover areas including Berowra, Hornsby, Macquarie Park, Gordon and Lindfield.

“Most of these buses also connect to major train stations – meaning customers can really take advantage of seamless interchange with their Opal card and never worry about buying tickets again”, Ms Berejiklian said.

All these services operate from the Transdev Kuring-gai depot where the first Opal bus customer trial started last September on the 594 route.

“I expect the rollout on buses will mean more people will want to join 170,000 Opal card customers who have registered for their card and made more than seven million journeys”, Ms Berejiklian added.
