NSW Seniors Card Holders are eligible to start travelling with the Seniors/Pensioner Opal Card. The $2.50 paper Excursion Tickets are still available, but choosing to switch to Opal gives you the same unlimited travel plus lots more.
Transport made easy
Opal is a reusable smartcard, similar in size to a credit card. You only need to get yout Opal card once. Instead of buying a paper ticket, you can load value onto your Opal card to pay for your travel. And if you choose to set your Opal card to auto top up, when your card value gets low it automatically tops up – like an e-tag in your pocket.
Unlimited travel for $2.50 a day
Gold Senior/Pensioner Opal card fares are capped at $2.50 a day*. So you never pay more than the current Pensioner Excursion Ticket. And sometimes you can even pay less.
*Excludes Sydney Airport Station Access Fee
Safe and Secure
With a registered card, if you happen to lose it, or it gets stolen, your balance is protected and can be transferred to a new card.
