AT HOP system restoration update

Customers are able to top-up their AT HOP cards at customer service centres, including at Waitematā (Britomart) and Downtown.

Most AT HOP ticket machines at stations are available to use, and some AT HOP retailers are now able to top-up cards and process other AT HOP services.

We now anticipate MyAT and online top-up to be available from Thursday afternoon.

As with any significant IT and system rollout, there have been a few teething issues which has meant some small delays, and we appreciate our customers’ patience as we restore the wider system.

Customers can continue to use buses, trains and ferries. Please keep tagging on and tagging off.

Grace period for topping-up extended

If you have a negative balance, you should top-up your card as soon as possible. There will be a grace period until the end of the day on Friday for you to top-up. You will also need to cover any negative balance on your AT HOP card.


If you have topped-up your card via eftpos or credit card since Wednesday last week, you can expect your account to be charged in the next couple of days. You will need to cover any negative balance on your AT HOP card.

For auto-top ups, if a customer’s auto top-up triggered since the cyber incident, the payment will now be processed over in the next couple of days.

Gordon Campbell: On The Government’s Smokefree Laws Debacle

The most charitable explanation for National’s behaviour over the smokefree legislation is that they have dutifully fulfilled the wishes of the Big Tobacco lobby and then cast around – incompetently, as it turns out - for excuses that might sell this health policy U-turn to the public. The less charitable view is that the government was being deliberately misleading. Are we to think Prime Minister Christopher Luxon is a fool, or a liar? It seems rather early on in his term of office to be facing that unpleasant choice. Yet when Luxon (and senior MP Chris Bishop) tried to defend the indefensible with the same wildly inaccurate claim, there are not a lot of positive explanations left on the table.... More

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
