Stock up

OPUS card

Load up to three 10-trip fares.

If you’ve been going out less since the start of the pandemic, you may have already switched to using our 10-trip fare. These fares never expire, so you can stock up on them with your OPUS card to make sure you don’t run out.

Protect your fare balance by registering your OPUS card. You will be able to keep your fares if you lose your card.
