One of the ‘official’ apps endorsed by Transport for NSW now also allows you to scan your Opal card with an Android phone.
Using a Near Field Communication (NFC) enabled Android device, you can now scan your Opal card to check your balance, travel rewards and more.
This functionally is available on Android devices only. Apple reserves NFC functionality for Apple Pay only.
Once you scan your Opal card, the following information displays:
- Opal card balance
- Weekly travel rewards
- Last tap details
- Opal card number, status and auto top up status (active or inactive)
Opal Travel is available from Google Play.
