You mean Opal? I don't have much doubt that there will be no change to current interchange penalties, but still hold a slender hope that sense will prevail.
We should know sometime next quarter, when the Manly ferry goes live.
So basically, we still think the same thing we thought last year.
We'll see if it allows Manly to Neutral Bay ferry interchange, actually, as Sydney Ferries also penalises for connections at Circular Quay (which my friends discovered on a Darling Harbour to Manly trip, to great consternation and vexation).
Funny you should mention that...
Travelling from Manly to Neutral Bay via Ferry with Opal will cost $7; saving $6 off the paper ticket price of $13
