Processing an expired OPUS card

Processing an expired OPUS card

The OPUS card has an expiry date, after which it will no longer work, even if it is still loaded with fares. In such a case, you will need to buy new fares to get around.

For details on the expiration date of your OPUS card, visit the official OPUS card expiration date verification site.

Does your OPUS card expire within 3 months or has it expired within the last 6 months?

Get a new OPUS card and retrieve the tickets loaded on it by going to one of our metropolitan ticket offices. Fees will apply for issuing your new OPUS card onto which your tickets will be transferred.
