No more expiry date on Gold Opal card when visiting NSW
South Australian Seniors Card members can obtain a Gold Opal card that never expires, for use on public transport services across Sydney, the Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Hunter, Illawarra and Southern Highlands capped at $2.50 a day, no matter how much they travel.
Until now, the Gold Opal card for South Australian members travelling to NSW was only valid for 60 days and members had to reapply each time they travelled to NSW or stayed longer than 60 days.
Following an agreement between the South Australian and NSW governments to periodically revalidate ongoing eligibility, SA Seniors Card members will now receive a Gold Opal card with no set expiry date and after the initial application, renewal applications will not be required.
To be eligible for a Gold Opal card, you must hold a valid SA Seniors Card, and apply through the NSW Government Opal card website. Each month, Transport NSW will check whether SA members currently holding a Gold Opal card are still eligible and if so, the card will remain valid.
