Welcome to Sydney!
Welcome to the Sydney page for Children's Public Transit Wallet card set. We're so glad you made it!

THE TRANSIT CARD
The "Opal" card is how the people of Sydney pay for their train fare. Here's their official site.
Here's SO Awesome's Children's Public Transit Sydney card next to the actual card for comparison.
We added a student picture ID to ours to make it a little different than the real card.
Children can have their own Opal card, which are green. We liked the look of the black/grey one a little better though!
