Gold Opal

You deserve the best transport discounts around

That's exactly what you get when you use the Gold Opal Card you're eligible for as a Seniors Card VIP. Your Gold Opal gives you:

  • Unlimited travel for $2.50 a day - get around as much as you want on trains, buses, ferries and light rail in Sydney, the Blue Mountains, the Central Coast, Hunter, Illawarra and the Southern Highlands. (Excludes Sydney Airport Station Access Fee.) See full list of services and destinations covered.
  • Convenient, reusable smartcard - so much easier than buying paper Excursion Tickets each time you travel. Just load and go - or set it up for auto top-up so you never have to reach for cash again.
  • Protection - even if your card is lost or stolen, your balance is safe and secure, and can be transferred to a new card.
  • Transport concessions Australia-wide - check the Seniors Card website for the state or territory you're visiting for details on how to qualify.
