Can I use my NSW opal card in Melbourne?
Opal card can’t be used in Melbourne even though it can be used in Sydney. Melbourne has a different type of card which is the myKi card which would cost you another $20 to load but you can use the amount in it for bus and train purposes. There is also a minimum amount in it so better keep that in mind when you get off a bus or taxi. There is actually a free train route in Melbourne that will get you around the city so better take note of the train routes. Due to how expensive everything is in Australia, it would be best to take advantage of this. In fact, the train is hardly full due to the number of trains there are. It is such a great project by the city that benefits not only residents but tourists as well. Imagine having to walk a few meters but that is out of the way due to this train route.
