    Thanks for this really helpful post. I love using public transport when I travel. Sounds to me that Sydney’s Opal card is most like Adelaide’s with a pretty complex pricing structure and a lot of rules. The best thing for travellers is that after 8 trips in a week travel is free so if you plan your time carefully you can visit the Blue Mountains for nothing! I wrote a long post about it on my blog to try to make it easy for visitors to understand.

      Hi Paula, that’s a great tip. I didn’t know about the Opal Card either. I knew about the 2.50 dollars cap. Thanks for adding it to this list.

    To get a metro card in Adelaide if you hold a interstate seniors card go to Adelaide central railway station and present your seniors card and get fourteen days free travel on the public transport system I rang up Adelaide this afternoon and that’s what I got told
