Fare structure finalised for Auckland’s new LINK bus services

Auckland’s newest bus services, the Outer, Inner and City LINK bus services begin operating on Sunday 21 August.

Auckland Transport’s Public Transport Operations Manager, Mark Lambert says, “Fare structures have now been finalised for all three services.
“For the new Outer LINK bus service, customers will pay no more than the standard two stage fare of $3.40 which will connect central suburbs including Herne Bay, Pt Chevalier, St Lukes, Mt Eden and Newmarket.

“The Outer Link is a cost effective and easy way to get around Auckland’s most popular city fringe suburbs.

“The new Inner LINK service, which replaces the existing LINK service, will retain a flat $1.80 fare and run a revised route that provides a more direct and reliable service for customers”.

Mr Lambert says, “The new City LINK bus will remain free until the end of this year as part of the service introduction period. From 1 January 2012, the City LINK will remain free to HOP card users and cost 50 cents for other full-fare cash paying passengers with other concessions for school students, children and seniors.

“HOP card users receive an additional discount of at least ten per cent.”

New high quality buses painted red, amber and green will operate on the three LINK services. The new buses will be air conditioned, wheel-chair accessible, buggy friendly and meet Euro 5+ emissions standards.

Full details of the new LINK services and revised CBD and Western Bays bus routes are available on the MAXX website.
