This section of the website describes the different magnetic strip tickets used since Automatic Fare Collection was installed at Circular Quay terminal and
Manly Wharf in 1989. The tickets are dispensed from ticket vending machines and booking office machines at manned windows at these locations.
Most of the tickets are specifically for ferry travel, however some types have a bus and/or rail travel component as well.
The same applies to the range of pre-printed/encoded tickets developed for sale off-system.
