Is the Opal Tap On and Off from Opal Cards only or does it include credit/debit cards

In looking at the the Opal Tap On and Off data in this link:

It says in its supporting documentation that this is Opal Tap on and Off. In this context, does Opal mean the Opal card only or is it the Greater Opal system (i.e. credit/debit card and paper tickets as well).

Hi @mickandchick - good question. We will update the documentation to reflect

The data for reported taps are a combination of Opal card and Contactless Transport Payment (CTP) transactions.
