COVID-19 update: Public transport reminder

A reminder about using public transport in Auckland under Alert Level 1.

You can travel, but make sure you do it in a safe way. This means wearing a face covering on buses, trains and ferries.

Face masks are on sale in vending machines at public transport facilities across Auckland. The masks are in 42 machines at bus and rail stations and ferry wharves. This means passengers who may have lost or forgotten their face covering can get one quickly and easily to avoid missing their journey.

Please continue to scan QR codes on public transport with the NZ COVID Tracer app.

In addition to scanning the Ministry of Health’s QR code, AT recommends that customers also register their AT HOP card to help with contact tracing and make sure their details are up to date. This will also allow us to monitor passenger numbers and make fast adjustments to services if required due to changes in demand. We will be working to make those changes as quickly as possible and again advise customers to plan their journey.

 To be ready at Alert Level 1, the Government says to:

  • Practise good hygiene;
  • Stay home if you’re sick;
  • Get tested if you have cold, flu or COVID-19 symptoms;
  • Keep track of where you’ve been and who you’ve seen.
