On Monday 1 September, 14 public transport ticket types will no longer be available, including the MyTrain weekly.

The 14 paper tickets that will no longer be available to NSW transport customers include:

  • Adult Fortnightly (14 Day)
  • Adult Quarterly (90 Day)
  • Adult Yearly (365 Day)
  • Concessions Monthly (28 Day)

Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian warned customers to plan ahead and avoid long queues on Monday 1 September when the 14 tickets will no longer be available.

“It’s important that customers know what paper tickets are going from 1 September so they don’t get caught out in long queues on their way to work next Monday,” Ms Berejiklian said.

Minister Berejiklian said she accepts this is a major change for some paper ticket customers, but has urged customers to take advantage of the benefits of Opal card. Opal benefits include free travel rewards and an online top-up service.

“Opal is transforming the way people travel and helping to bring the state’s public transport network into the 21st century, but I accept it is a major change for customers.

Customers can order their Opal card online(link is external) or by calling 13 67 25 (13 OPAL).
