15 000 Swap to HOP.
Auckland Transport proclaim that 15 000 bus users have swapped their Go Rider cards for the new HOP integrated ticketing smartcard. It was an historic day for Auckland’s public transport system as the first public transport commuters began tagging on and off on North Star buses. Next in line is Go West and Waka Pacific (from 22 May), followed by MetroLink and LINK services (from 6 June). The HOP card brings with it many benefits such as; a saving of 10% or more off the normal cash fare, faster and easier boarding times, you can top up your HOP card with e-money or load it with 10 trips, your balance can be protected if it is lost and/or stolen and HOP is online – access your card’s balance, transactions and journey history. We believe that the HOP card will be a hopping success.
