Ticketing systems of Sydney

Sydney uses a disparate collection of ticketing systems to collect fare on public transport: uses magstripe tickets, the multi-modal MyZone system covers much of the network, but each mode also issue their own tickets. T-Card was the first attempt at replacing it was a Smartcard system but failed, with the Opal system currently being introduced.

I've already forgotten how to make a weekly magstripe ticket last all week!

It's actually a Sydney MyMulti ticket - their automated fare collection system was also developed by AES Prodata - the developers of Metcard

Yet another CityRail ticket machine needing to be serviced!

With everyone buying return tickets presumably they see heavier use than the Metcard machines in Melbourne
