To use Sydney public transportation, you need an Opal Card. It works a bit like a debit card. You can load money onto the card at a transportation station or authorised store like 7-Eleven to use on Sydney trains, buses, ferries and more. Order, top up, or report a lost Opal card here.
International students are generally not entitled to transport concessions in NSW unless study is fully funded by specified Australian Government scholarships. For more information see the NSW Transport website.
