In New South Wales, universal travel card makes implementing #freetransit easier

Free trips: "More than two million free trips have been taken by customers using the Opal card on buses, trains and ferries with more than 250,000 cards now registered.

Customers can travel free anywhere on the Opal network once they have reached their weekly travel cap of eight paid journeys during the week, or reached their daily cap.
 "For bus customers, the rollout is underway and they too can enjoy cheaper fares, the convenience of always knowing their Opal card is ready to go and never again arriving at the bus stop to find their TravelTen has no rides left."
"This is the fantastic thing about Opal – travelling for free will increase patronage once customers realise they can jump on and off public transport without paying a thing," she says.
The NSW Government also announced Opal is now activated on all of the State Transit buses serving the 326, 327, 355, 361 and L24 bus routes."
