Express Mode for Apple Pay Is Currently Available in New South Wales

The government of New South Wales in Australia made the announcement that the Opal ticketing system now supports Express Mode for Apple Pay payments.

This enables the fare card to be attached to the Wallet app on a compatible iPhone or Apple Watch for tap-and-go payments across public transportation networks. The announcement was made by the government of New South Wales.

Through the usage of the Express Transit mode, customers are able to pay for journeys without having to wake up their iPhone or Apple Watch, unlock it, or launch the Opal app.

Additionally, the mode eliminates the need to authenticate using Touch ID, Face ID, or a passcode on the device.

Transport for New South Wales carried out a phased deployment of Express Mode across the 25,000 card readers on the Opal network, first with ferries and light rail, then moving on to train stations, and finally finishing with the thousands of Opal readers on buses this week.
