Set up your Samsung Pay Transit card

Last modified : May 25. 2020

Tired of carrying so many cards around when you're out and about? Or stressing where you last left your Opal card? Now you can forget all about locating your transit card to tap on and off because you can do it all from your your Samsung smartphone. You can set up your default transport card on Samsung Pay and use your Samsung device to pay for travel for compatible Transport for NSW services and fares.

Once you’re set up, simply place the back of your phone against the card reader, with the rear camera positioned in the middle of the reader, to tap on or off. No need to wake or unlock your phone.

Please Note: Compatible Transport for NSW services currently include Sydney Ferries, Sydney Trains and the light rail service. Contactless payments are not yet available for Buses, private ferry or NSW TrainLink Regional rail or coach services. Contactless fares are the same price as a standard (peak) Adult Opal fare for the same trip. Click the following link to learn more about Contactless Payments.
