Lowest cost ticket options for using public transport
Auckland Transport (AT) would like to ensure our school students are aware of the lowest cost ticket options for using public transport in Auckland.
AT HOP is a reusable prepay smart card for travel on buses, trains and ferries around Auckland. Students can also load a Child or Secondary Student concession on their AT HOP card to receive discounted fares.
AT has found a large number of primary, intermediate and secondary school students who are still using cash to pay for public transport, rather than using an AT HOP card. Therefore, those children are not benefitting from the discounts on fares that AT Metro provides. Additionally, there are some school age children using an AT HOP card without the correct Child or Secondary Student Concession loaded, so they are not currently receiving the travel discounts they are eligible for.
To assist parents and carers in ensuring our students are paying the lowest fares, visit AT HOP website AT.govt.nz/goodtogo to find out more information.
