Lower minimum online top up amounts for Opal cards

Published: 30 May 2017

Skip the queue at the station and top up your Opal card online, with new, lower minimum amounts for digital channels announced.


From 3 July 2017, the minimum amount to top up an adult Opal card will be reduced from $40 to $10. Concession/Child Youth and Gold Senior Pensioner Opal card holders will be able to top up online with a minimum of $5.

Minister for Transport Andrew Constance said people were not topping up online because the current minimum values were too high.

"We're changing that from July 3 and hope it gets people online and keeps them moving faster," Mr Constance said.

Opal cards can be topped up on the Opal website or the Opal Travel mobile app.
