Opal & myki Cards


Eligible AIM Sydney students can apply for a Concession Opal Card.

Here's what you need to do:

-       AIM Sydney students submit a signed copy of the Tertiary Student Concession Card Application form to Student Services.
-       AIM will confirm with Opal that the student is eligible.
-       The student can then apply for the Concession Opal Card through the Opal Website: www.opal.com.au.
-       Opal will send the student their Opal card in the mail (processing takes 5-7 business days)

For help

If students are having problems with their Opal cards they must contact Opal.
Students will only need to contact Student Services if their application for concession card has been rejected. AIM can look into why it has been rejected. Generally this will be because they do not have enough credit points. In this case please email: opalcards@aim.edu.au

Proving your Eligibility

For travel within the Opal network Sydney AIM students will be able to travel with your student ID card as proof of entitlement for concession fares.

For travel outside the Opal network – including many rural and regional buses and NSW TrainLink Regional services:

  • You’ll need to apply for a Transport Concession Entitlement Card to prove your eligibility to travel on a concession fare
  • Applications for a Transport Concession Entitlement Card open from 1 February 2017.

Tertiary Student Concession Cards and foil stickers will not be accepted after 31 March 2017
