From Monday 23 March 2020, Auckland Transport will be suspending cash fares on all buses.
We are doing this to minimise physical contact between customers, Auckland Transport staff and people who work on buses during Covid-19.
Customers will be expected to pay their fare using AT HOP cards only. This will eliminate cash handling on buses and at depots to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus through touching money and interacting with customers.
Customers are asked to exit from the rear doors of the bus to minimise contact with the drivers.
Our priority is to protect our customers and staff to ensure we can continue to deliver public transport.
