Customers Can Still Travel During AT HOP Disruption

Auckland Transport is currently experiencing issues with its AT HOP services and wants to reassure customers they can still catch buses, trains and ferries while the issue is being resolved.

This issue has arisen from a cyber incident impacting part of the AT HOP system. At this point in time we believe the incident is isolated to one part of our system and that no personal or financial data has been compromised.

The issue is impacting top-ups and other HOP card services. However, AT’s staff and operators are ensuring everyone is still able to travel, even if their card is unable to be topped-up. Customers should still tag on and off when travelling.

AT takes cyber security extremely seriously, we have activated our security protocols and are working with our expert partners to resolve the issue as quickly as possible, however we anticipate it may take until early next week to fully restore these services.

We will fully investigate the incident and provide further details following the completion of that investigation.

Services affected:

  • Online top ups, as well as other AT HOP services using MyAT HOP on our website, is currently unavailable.
  • Existing auto top ups will still work, but there will be a delay in the payment being processed.
  • Ticket and top up machines are only accepting cash payments. Transactions using Eftpos/credit cards are unavailable. Some machines may not be working.
  • AT customer service centres will have limited functionality and may only be able to accept cash payments.
  • AT HOP retailers are unable to top up HOP cards or process other AT HOP services like loading concessions.

Mere days after taking on what he called the “awesome responsibility” of being Prime Minister, Christopher Luxon has started blaming everyone else and complaining that he's inherited “economic vandalism on an unprecedented scale” - which is how most of us would describe his own coalition agreements, 100-Day Plan, and backdated $3 billion handout to landlords...

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal. This is because it is going to be implemented earlier and faster, including retrospective rebates from April 2023. More

Green Party: Petition To Save Oil & Gas Ban

“The new Government’s plan to expand oil and gas exploration is as dangerous as it is unscientific. Whatever you think about the new government, there is simply no mandate to trash the climate. We need to come together to stop them,” says James Shaw. More

PSA: MFAT Must Reverse Decision To Remove Te Reo

MFAT's decision to remove te reo from correspondence before new Ministers are sworn in risks undermining the important progress the public sector has made in honouring te Tiriti. "We are very disappointed in what is a backward decision - it simply seems to be a Ministry bowing to the racist rhetoric we heard on the election campaign trail," says Marcia Puru. More
