AT HOP Cracks 200,000

Aucklanders are now travelling on more than 200,000 AT HOP cards.

AT HOP is a smart-card which can be used for travel on trains and ferries and it is now rolling out to buses across the region.

Auckland Transport has been progressively introducing the system across different transport modes and a multitude of operators.

AT’s chief operations officer Greg Edmonds says the 200,000 card milestone comes with 95 per cent of the roll-out – due for the end of March – completed.

Mr Edmonds says that under the second phase of the integrated ticketing programme, a new Fares Policy will be developed. This will involve a review of fare structures (e.g. stage-based, zonal, distance-based), investigation of different fare products and passes, and pricing levels.

The system was introduced on Howick and Eastern Bus services last weekend (February 16), and will be followed by services on Waiheke.

For more information call Auckland Transport on 09-3664467 or go to: www.ATHOP.co.nz

Fast facts:
• On an average weekday some 236,000 trips are taken on public transport in the region.
• More than 3 million trips each month are made using the AT HOP card.
• On an average weekday buses in Auckland travel some 164,000 km – the equivalent of flying from Auckland to London nine times.

You can read the full terms of use of the AT HOP cards, the registered prospectus relating to the AT HOP cards and other information regarding the AT HOP cards on our website or at the Transport Information Centre, Britomart. The obligations of Auckland Transport under the AT HOP cards are unsecured. ATHOP.co.nz
