    Opal and tickets

    If you travel in Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Hunter or the Illawarra, your best ticket is an Opal card.  Opal is a smartcard that you load value onto and pay as you go for use across all modes of transport.

    If you travel in regional NSW, there are a range of public and privately-operated regional transport services.
