STATION officers told the politicians that many commuters said they were interested in the Opal card, but that those without computer access weren't keen.
Commuters can top up their card online using a credit or debit card.
Cash op up vending machines at railway stations and newsagencies will soon be rolled out.
Commuters will still be able to buy paper tickets. There's no date on when they will be phased out.
Details: 131 500 or transportnsw.gov.au to order your Opal card.
