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.

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

Coin only 'fast fare' ticket machines

They only sell tickets to a small number of stations, and don't give more than $1.90 in change
