== By train ==
 +
Cash payments are no longer processed on board the train, so you will have to purchase your ticket before you get on a train. See the [https://at.govt.nz/bus-train-ferry/train-services Auckland Transport (AT) website] for more details. The nearest train station to the LCA venue is Britmart, which is 1.348kms away, or 20 mins walk from the OGGB, located at the bottom of Queen Street.

Latest revision as of 22:19, 8 January 2015

< Main Page < About < Auckland

Auckland's public transport system is mostly organised by Auckland Transport, which has a unified ticketing system called the AT HOP card.

AT HOP Card

  • A reusable prepay smart card for travel on trains, ferries and buses around Auckland.
  • Save money on fares - at least 20% discount off adult single trip cash fares (excludes NiteRider and Airbus Express bus services and Waiheke ferry services).
  • Free City LINK buses - AT HOP cards travel free on red City LINK buses as long as you have a positive or zero balance, otherwise you need to pay the cash fare.
  • Load a concession for discounted fares
  • Eligible registered AT HOP users can enjoy free WiFi at train stations and selected bus stations and ferry terminals across Auckland (1 GB per day).

Costs

  • New card: 10 NZD (5 NZD for the card, 5 NZD minimum top-up.
  • Minimum top-up: 5 NZD

Using AT HOP

  • AT HOP requires you "tag on" when you board, then "tag off" when you leave.
  • Failing to "tag off" incurs a penalty.
  • If you have a negative balance, you cannot "tag on"

Adding credit

By bus

Central city buses

The LINK buses loop around the city anti-clockwise. There are three routes all at a reasonable price:

  • City LINK - Red, $0.50, every 7-10 minutes. This goes up and down Queen St.
  • Inner LINK - Green, $2, every 10-15 minutes. This goes around the CBD (Central Business Area) and out to New Market.
  • Outer LINK - Orange, $2 to $4, every 15 minutes. This goes up and down Queen St.

Buses going further

There are many other buses that go out to the suburbs, see the Auckland Transport (AT) website for more details. They have an online journey planner to calculate which bus services you need to catch, from where, to get to your destination.

Tip: Google maps directions work well with the Auckland Transport system. Additional Tip: Never trust google maps for transit!

By train

Cash payments are no longer processed on board the train, so you will have to purchase your ticket before you get on a train. See the Auckland Transport (AT) website for more details. The nearest train station to the LCA venue is Britmart, which is 1.348kms away, or 20 mins walk from the OGGB, located at the bottom of Queen Street.

By ferry

There are several ferry operators available in Auckland, and you will need to locate the appropriate ticketing office for the service you wish to use. See the Auckland Transport (AT) website for more details. The nearest ferry terminal to the LCA venue is 1.6km away, or 23 mins walk from the OGGB, located at the bottom of Queen Street, beyond Britomart, and out onto Quay Street.

By taxi

There are many taxi companies available in Auckland, and you can hail a cab right off the street, walk to your nearest taxi rank, or call and book a cab by telephone. Some taxi companies allow you to book online, some have smartphone apps, and there are independent apps as well, that aren't tied to any particular taxi company. Then there's Uber, which also has a presence in Auckland.

CCTV cameras have become compulsory in taxi cabs throughout NZ since 1 August 2011, so expect to be under surveillance at all times in your cab.
