Request for the transportation card abroad

No matter which city you go to, there will always be something to see on the other side, a place you have to commute to daily, or a friend inviting you for a movie night with popcorn at their apartment on a Saturday night. Fortunately, major cities in the country have a transportation card that allows you to use as many public transportation options as you want.

Get around your city with a transportation card

No matter how much you enjoy long walks in the sunlight or under the moon, there are trips that you’ll need to take using public transportation due to distance and time constraints, such as buses, metros, and trains. The transportation card in each city will allow you to use all of them, and at Dingoos, we help you apply for it so that you can have it in your wallet from your first day in the destination country.

On the same day you land at the airport, your Dingoos Integrator will accompany you to apply for the transportation card of your city and explain its functioning, the different zones you can move through, and the stations and stops that are most convenient for reaching various places based on where you live or plan to live. This way, you can start moving around freely like the wind in your new city and plan your next destinations.

Each city has its transportation card

If you want detailed information about transportation in different cities in Australia and Canada, hop on, and we’ll take you on a tour of each one:



Brisbane: Go Card

The transportation network in Brisbane includes buses, trains, trams, and even ferries. The transportation card is called the Go Card. The cost of each trip will depend on the zone you travel through, but to give you an idea, you can take a look at the prices here.


Gold Coast: Go Card

The best way to get around Gold Coast is by tram, which has 16 stops covering 13 kilometers. Buses are also a good option, and both are interconnected, allowing transfers between them. The transportation card in Gold Coast is called the Go Card, and you can check all its fares on their website.


Melbourne: Myki Card

The transportation card in Melbourne is called the Myki Card, which allows you to travel by train, bus, and metro. It costs 6 dollars and works as a stored-value card: you load it with money, and the fare will vary depending on the zone you travel to.

If you plan to use it daily, we recommend converting your card into a Myki Pass to save a handful of dollars. If you want to take a look at all the prices according to zones, visit their official website.


Perth: SmartRider

The transportation card in Perth is called the SmartRider. There are several versions, but to give you an idea, the SmartRider Standard works as a stored-value card and costs $10 AUD, which acts as an initial recharge. Each time you use it, money will be deducted from your balance based on the zone you travel to.


Sydney: Opal Card

The card you’ll use to get around Sydney is called the Opal Card, which functions as a rechargeable card for buses, trains, trams, and ferries. The first recharge is $20 AUD, and from there, you can top it up as many times as you want with a minimum amount of $10 AUD each time. The fare will vary depending on the zone you travel to.



Toronto: Presto Card

The card you’ll need to get around Toronto is the Presto Card. The price of the card is $6 Canadian dollars, and you can then recharge it with any amount you want. The good thing is that you can not only recharge it at stations but also through an app. You can obtain these cards from the machines at stations and various stores around the city.

With this card, you can travel by metro, bus, and tram.


Vancouver: Compass Card

The Compass Card is the best transportation card if you plan to take multiple trips in Vancouver. You can use it for metro, bus, and train travel. The price is $6 Canadian dollars, and you can subsequently recharge it with any amount you want. The best part is that it has a modern app, and you can also carry your card on your phone, so you’ll never forget it.


Montreal: Opus Card

The Opus Card is the transportation card for convenient travel by metro and/or bus in Montreal. The price of the card is $6 Canadian dollars, and you can recharge it whenever you need. You can obtain the card at any metro or bus station.



Leap Card

The Leap Card is the name of the public transportation card in Dublin, Cork, Galway, Limerick, and Waterford.

Using the Leap Card is a way to save money if you want to get around the major cities in Ireland. You save at least 20% on each trip. It’s very easy to use; you just need to buy the card for €5 and load it with at least another €5 to start traveling. Once you have the card, you can recharge it online, at stations, or authorized stores.



Tallinja Card

The Tallinja Card is the best option if you plan to stay in Malta for an extended period. It is recommended to apply for it online one month before arriving on the island. It costs €15, and the first time you need to make a minimum initial recharge of €20 or more to activate it. Afterward, you can recharge it with any amount you need.

Reino Unido:


Oyster Card

The Visitor Oyster Card and the Oyster Card are smart electronic cards for traveling throughout the United Kingdom. You can recharge and use them as you travel on the bus, Tube, DLR, MBNA Thames Clippers river bus service, London Overground, and most National Rail services in London.

After reading all this, don’t you feel like leaving home and hopping on the first bus that passes by, just like that? Very soon, you’ll be able to do it in Australia, Canada, Ireland, the United Kingdom, or Malta.
