Commuters will soon be able to tap in and out of Sydney & # 39; s buses with their credit cards under a further extension of NSW & # 39; s Opal card system.

Contactless transport payments will be rolled out from August to Opal-compatible buses, NSW Transport Minister Andrew Constance announced on Sunday.

& # 39; The launch of this technology on buses is the final piece in the contactless puzzle and we expect that all buses on the Opal network can accept credit and debit cards by the end of September & # 39 ;, Constance said in a statement.

It follows the roll-out of technology to state trains in November last year.

A credit card is also eligible for the same rate and travel benefits as an adult Opal card on trains, light rail, ferries and buses once the system is fully implemented.

From Monday off-peak prices, a transfer discount and the weekly travel allowance – half price after booking eight trips in a week – are available on all contactless transport payments.

Commuters can use mobile wallets on their smartphones, tablets and portable devices to pay for their journey.
