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.

Electric trains

Auckland's electric trains make rail travel more attractive. The trains are faster, quieter and more energy-efficient, featuring the latest developments in technology and safety.



Get two hours free parking at Britomart car park when you spend $50 or more at one of Britomart's 65+ restaurants, cafes, bars and boutiques. See the full list of businesses who qualify here.
