How To Get My Opal Card

All full-time students at AFTRS are eligible for travel concession in NSW. 

AFTRS Students can use their AFTRS photo ID card, which you will get during O-Week, as proof of entitlement when travelling with a Concession Opal card in the Opal network.

In order to enable access to apply for a concession card, you will need to:

  1. Complete this link to an editable pdf Application for a Tertiary Student Concession form. The form gives consent for AFTRS to share your contact details with Transport for NSW.
  2. Return the form to Student Centre, either by email to or in person at the Student Centre.
  3. Wait for Student Centre to advise you of when you can apply for a Concession Opal card via the Opal website. Once you have applied it will take 7-9 days before you receive your card in the post.

You cannot apply for a concession card without submitting a completed form to the Student Centre. 

If you require any further information please go to the Opal websites Concessions page.
