Some paper tickets are being retired from 1 September 2014

Simplifying ticketing for Transport customers

The new electronic ticketing system, Opal, has been successfully rolled out across all Sydney ferries, Sydney Trains, NSW TrainLink Intercity services and a number of bus services.

The Opal card provides many new benefits to customers including cheaper fares and never having to queue for a ticket again. When these benefits are combined and with a significant section of the public transport network activated for Opal, now is the right time for some paper tickets to be retired.

Retiring old paper tickets will allow us to continue to modernise the transport network.

Tickets no longer sold from 1 September 2014

Fourteen (14) of the old paper tickets are being retired from 1 September, meaning that you will no longer be able to buy these tickets.

Tickets bought before 1 September will continue to work as usual, so you can keep using your tickets until the expiry date.

For example if you purchase a MyTrain Fortnightly (14 days) ticket on 28 August it will work for 14 days and into the post-1 September period.

MyFerry TravelTens will work until all ten trips have been used up.

After 1 September, customers will need to use an Opal card or they may choose to continue using a form of paper ticket that is still available.
