We travelled with our Seniors card on buses, ferries, trains each day for 5 days. Amazingly we went as far as Katoomba on our $2.50 day ticket. From 1st September, they switch to an Opal Card....tap on, tap off...not sure how much this will cost. Will be very similar to an Oyster Card. It is surely easier to travel from... More
