Opal multi-mode travel cheaper from 5 September 2016
Catching a bus and train, or ferry and train is cheaper for tens of thousands of commuters from Monday 5 September with the introduction of a transfer discount for changing modes when travelling on public transport.
The new $2.00 transfer discount will start Monday morning every time an Adult Opal card customer changes a mode of transport as part of the same journey.
Opal card customers accessing concession fares will receive a transfer discount of $1.00 when they change mode on a journey.
Many customers travelling to work and home every day could see their transfer discount save money every week.
This is about making fares fairer for more customers and making public transport more compelling.
The Government has announced that Opal card fares will continue to be frozen till July 2017 which means that fares haven’t increased on buses and light rail since 2014 and on trains and ferries since January 2015.
The Government has stated the changes to Opal are responsibly rebalancing the structure of Opal card fares and benefits.
The transfer discount is a better strategic option for transport when compared to the Opal weekly travel reward free trip which is being changed from Monday as well.
Opal will still keep providing free trips for customers after they reach the daily fare cap, weekly fare cap and the hugely discounted Sunday $2.50 fare cap, but after eight paid journeys the discount will be set at 50% instead of the 100% discount free trip.
From 5 September the single trip tickets will see various increases across modes and bands as recommended by the independent pricing regulator to ensure they are a set premium price that encourages Opal card usage.
