You can use your Metrocard on all Metro services including the Diamond Harbour Ferry.
If you have an online account, you can top up your Metrocard at any time. We highly recommend this as it saves you and others time when boarding, and means you don’t have to carry cash with you.
Plus when you top up online you automatically go in the draw to win monthly prizes.
You also have the option to set an automatic top up for your Metrocard to make sure you never run out of credit. This means a top up gets triggered automatically when the credit on your Metrocard drops under a certain amount.

You can top up with the driver on the bus using cash only, at the Metro Info Counter at the Bus Interchange or at a Metro agent using cash or eftpos. We recommend double checking on your top up receipt that the amount loaded on your card is correct.
Tell the driver the destination that you want to travel to and place your Metrocard on the card reader. It will deduct the fare and your new balance will then be displayed on the screen.
When the balance is below $5, the scanner displays a yellow light reminding you to top-up.
