There is an initial one-off cost of $10 to purchase the required smart card. Smart cards and all top ups can be purchased from the driver on the bus. Note that top ups need to be $10 or more (and preferably in multiples of 10 (eg $10, $20, $30 etc). Please have exact change for the amount you wish to load onto your card. Your card can be used for any fare, so if you need to use another one of our services to travel to a different fare zone the same card can now be used.
Sorry, the system no longer offers term passes. We now offer a ‘card fare’ or a ‘cash fare’. For example, if travelling from West Harbour to Rangitoto College, the card fare of $3.90 will be deducted from the card value, or the cash fare is $5.00.
