To help you get to any COVID-19 vaccination clinic, you can travel for free on buses and trains.
‘Free travel’ is a return journey to and from any vaccination or pop-up clinic using AT Metro buses and trains for both your first and second COVID-19 vaccinations. You do not need to tag on with an AT HOP card.
- Let the bus driver/gate-line staff/Transport Officer know that you are travelling to get a vaccination.
- Scan the QR code on-board, as well as at train stations and bus stops using the NZ COVID Tracer app.
- Wear a face covering on-board and maintain physical distancing.
- Remember NOT to tag on using your AT HOP card as travel is being provided free of cost.
As always, the safety of our staff and customers is a top priority. All public transport services are cleaned regularly and thoroughly.
Learn more about using public transport on our COVID-19 information page.
