NSW Transport operates all of the Sydney trains, buses, and ferries and sells the MyZone tickets (13–1500 www.transportnsw.info), which include MyBus, MyTrain, andMyFerry tickets. A daily ticket is A$24; a weekly is A$48 for Zone 1. The AirportLink rail service and sightseeing buses are not included in the price. If you are planning on using public transport for more than two or three trips consider buying an opal card (it's similar to Oyster in London or Octopus in Hong Kong), which covers buses, trains, ferries and light rail—tap it against the card reader at wharves, stations, and on buses and tap off again at the end of your journey. You can buy an opal card at most convenience stores and newsagents (from A$10) and top it up at machines at train stations, wharves, and light rail stops, online at www.opal.com.au, or by calling 13–6725.
