Auckland Transport's AT Metro integrated public transport network makes bus travel around the city quicker and easier.

The Link bus service connects the city centre and inner suburbs, local networks get people to and from North, South, East and West Auckland, and services run frequently between the city centre and the airport as well as New Zealand's regional centres.  

Auckland Transport also has a fantastic Night Bus service, and Northern Express (NX1 and NX2) services also provide easy ways to get home if you're out late.

Check out the current bus timetables here, or find routes, fares and other information by using Auckland Transport's bus, train and ferry journey planner here. 

Fares and AT HOP cards

Fares can be paid using an AT HOP card or cash for single-trip paper tickets. The AT HOP card is a reusable prepay smart card for travel on trains, ferries and buses around Auckland. Fares are calculated based on how many zones you travel through, rather than how many buses or trains you take.   

Discounts and concessions are available for day and monthly passes, and for children, students and accessible passengers. Senior citizens can travel for free on trains and selected bus and ferry services in Auckland, after 9am weekdays and all day weekends and public holidays with an AT HOP card loaded with a SuperGold public transport concession. See the AT website for more information about fares and discounts.

Fare concessions for under 25s

Discounted fares are only available on a registered AT HOP card. These discounts apply to AT timetabled bus, train and ferry services, and AT Local (excludes Waiheke and Rakino ferries).They also apply to students travelling on school buses. Adult cash fares apply on paper tickets. See more information here.

Pawtastic news, pets will now be allowed to travel on Auckland's trains following two trials and a survey of train customers. Pets can go on trains between nine in the morning and three in the afternoon and after 6:30 at night. They can travel all-day on weekends and on public holidays. All dogs must either be wearing an approved muzzle and lead or can be travelling in an approved pet carrier. Happy travels with your pets!
