Transport NSW has announced you can now pay for your travel using contactless cards. This does include wireless payments with Apple Pay, Apple’s secure mobile payment and digital wallet service.
The service has been rolled out on the Sydney Ferries and Light Train (Trams) network. Including at popular tourist destinations like Manly, Darling Harbour, Barangaroo, the International Convention Centre, Star Casino and Sydney Fish Markets.
Working very similar to Opal cards, you simply need to tap your Apple Pay-enabled iPhone or Apple Watch on the reader. You will then be charged an Adult Opal single trip ticket without needing to buy a ticket from an Opal ticket machine.
