Opal Fares

In Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, the Hunter and the Illawarra area, fares are calculated based on the distance travelled from tap on to tap off, payment method, the mode of transport, concession eligibility (or free travel) and any Opal benefits such as discounts and capped fares that apply.


This is a companion discussion topic for the original entry at https://opendata.transport.nsw.gov.au/dataset/opal-fares

Will this be available in GTFS fare_attributes.txt and fare_rules.txt ?

Hi @jayen - unfortunately not.
We are unable to ‘fit’ Opal fare rules into the GTFS specifications and include it in them.

Has TfNSW made a proposal to extend the spec? I see the IC Card in Japan has proposed a new field ic_price in fare_attributes.txt.

Thanks Jayen, we don’t have an extension proposal at this stage. We’ll take a look at this.
