Opal on more Western Sydney buses
The latest Opal rollout takes the number of Opal active buses to 3,290 and covers suburbs including Burwood, Bexley, Strathfield, Drummoyne, Campsie, Ashfield, Homebush, Lakemba, Kingsgrove and Five Dock.
Opal is live on all suburban and intercity trains and all Sydney Ferries.
Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian said that the NSW Government was on track to have Opal on all 5,000 buses across Sydney and the regions by the end of the year.
“Customers are embracing Opal and more than 850,000 cards have now been issued, including almost 100,000 Opal cards issued last week alone,” Ms Berejiklian said.
“Last week was a big test for us as 14 paper ticket types were retired and we saw the biggest jump in the number of customers switching to the Opal system.
