Opal Trips - Train


This dataset contains Official Train Utilisation figures. Opal tap-on/tap-off data (representing an individual entering & exiting a station), is allocated to a line and aggregated to a monthly figure for the estimated number of trips.

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


The data here looks a bit old, could we get some recent data?


Also it’d be quite nice if there was some more granular details (what station was entered)


Hi @ehmish, I’m chasing this up with Transport Performance and Analytics, hopefully they have a more up to date dataset. As for granularity, you might want to look at the Opal tap-on/tap-off dataset, which shows you figures for each station.


Hi @ehmish, I found out that unfortunately the more recent data for trains is still going through our approval process so can’t be published at this stage. We hope to get the data out soon, keep an eye out for it.




I was just wondering when a new (more updated) data release will be made available?

In particular, I was interested in Opal tap-on/tap-off data, which shows you figures for each station.



Hi @mc8616, unfortunately we don’t have new tap-on/tap-off data in the pipeline, hopefully we’ll get some more published later in the year. However, the ‘Opal-Trips’ datasets that give you high level figures are updated on a monthly basis.
