New Train Fares Reminder 

8 March 2011

Train passengers are reminded that new fares take effect from this Sunday.

Rail fare increases range from 10 cents for a one stage trip to 50 cents for eight stages. Customer fares are heavily subsidised through Auckland Transport and government agencies such as New Zealand Transport Agency.

Auckland Transport sets a maximum fare schedule after completing an annual review of ferry, bus and train fares. After its annual review Auckland Transport proposed a small percentage increase on trains only. The increase is due to an $8 million increase in costs associated with providing an additional 421 train services a week.

Bus and ferry operators have the right to set prices for ticket products they offer themselves.
