In September, the NSW Transport Minister challenged Opal Card users to "beat the system," and now someone has uploaded a video showing just how to do that.
After already doing two trips, the video says that the next six trips are going to be done rapid-fire between Erskineville and McDonaldtown Station.
According to Google Maps, this is only a five minute walk.
The woman in the video then does this six times, back-to-back.
When she gets back for the sixth and final time and checks her Opal Card, boom! Free trips!
This is how you get 6 journeys down in under 30 minutes. (No waiting 60 minutes between trips)Why 6 journeys and not 8?The reason behind doing 6 journeys and not 8 is to avoid going over the daily cap. Any trips outside of the daily cap will not go towards your weekly travel reward. Make sure you've done a couple off-peak trips on the previous day!Erskineville station and Macdonaldtown station are perfect for this hack as they are fairly close to each other and have Opal readers accessible without gates.
