{{Licensing Box|Please participate in the LCA2015 Delegate [[Wiki Hackathon]] which is happening on Sat 3-Jan-15 from 1-4pm (NZDT).

Auckland's public transport system is mostly organised by [https://at.govt.nz Auckland Transport], which has a unified ticketing system called the [https://at.govt.nz/bus-train-ferry/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 [https://at.govt.nz/bus-train-ferry/at-hop-card/at-hop-wifi free WiFi] at train stations and selected bus stations and ferry terminals across Auckland (1 GB per day).
+
  
== By bus ==
+
The intent of this page is to allow conf organisers to know who's expected at the airport when.
=== Central city buses ===
+
The [https://at.govt.nz/bus-train-ferry/bus-services/link-bus-service/ 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 [https://at.govt.nz/bus-train-ferry/ Auckland Transport (AT) website] for more details. They have an online [https://at.govt.nz/bus-train-ferry/journey-planner 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.
+
You might also be able to use the info below to connect up with people who are on the same flight as you, arrange taxi shares, and so on, so '''leave some contact info''' in the entries that you create.
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 [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.
+
== 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 [https://at.govt.nz/bus-train-ferry/ferry-services 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 ==
+
stands, fares, safety
+
== By bicycle ==
+
lanes, tracks, repairs, racks
+
== By alternate means ==
+
booking, timetables, fares
+
== By car ==
+
car rental, petrol stations, parking, road rules, safety
+
=== Parking at venue ===
+
There is lots of (Auckland University) day parking in the same building as the conference.  [https://linux.conf.au/wiki/LCA_FAQ#What_parking_options_are_there_at_the_Venue.3F See the FAQ] for details.
+
  
However there is basically no "all week" parking for those driving in from out of town for the whole conference and wanting to leave their car somewhere for the whole week of the conference.  The limited "student parking" that the residences have is all taken by summer students already (confirmed by Auckland University accommodation team 2014-11-17).  All the surrounding streets are time limited parking at least during the day.  There is no known "rent for just one week, at a week rate" parking buildings/locations nearby.
+
===Arrivals===
  
If you are planning on driving from out of town your best option is probably to park in one of the outer suburbs (outside all the parking restrictions) at the start of the week, then take public transport back into the centre (for the university). Possibly near where a friend, or extended family member lives, so they can check on your car periodically; if you don't know anyone in Auckland maybe you can make a friend on the LCA2015 chat list? :-)
