AT HOP monthly pass AT HOP monthly pass

AT HOP monthly passes are loaded onto AT HOP cards. They provide unlimited travel on the services listed for each pass for one calendar month from the day of first use.

Buying a monthly pass

  • The monthly pass price does not include the $10 one-off purchase price of an AT HOP card. Purchase price is non-refundable.
  • AT HOP monthly passes can be purchased online or from ticket offices, AT HOP retailers and AT HOP ticket machines.
  • There are no refunds for activated AT HOP monthly passes.
  • Only one monthly pass of the same type can be loaded on your card at a time. A second monthly pass can be loaded once the first monthly pass has been activated.

How the monthly pass works

  • The monthly pass starts from the day the pass is first activated (tagged on), eg if you tag on on 13 January the pass is valid until midnight 12 February.

Tag on and tag off with the monthly pass

  • If you have a monthly pass you have to tag on and tag off as you travel. If you fail to tag on and tag off you may be charged a default fare.
  • If there are insufficient funds in your AT HOP account to cover other travel not included in the monthly pass, your card will go into a negative balance. Your card will not be able to be used until the negative balance is cleared including your monthly pass. The minimum that you can top up to clear the negative balance is $5 or the value of the IOU amount, whichever is greater. We suggest that in addition to your monthly pass you maintain a small HOP money balance. Find out how to top-up your AT HOP card with HOP money.

Log in to buy a monthly pass if you have an MyAT account and your card is registered.

How long before it's active on your card or shows in your online account

After buying your monthly pass, your pass will be available after it has been processed (usually within 24 hours, but it can take up to 72 hours), and will show up in your online account only after you tag on. Tag on within 60 days, otherwise the pass will expire and the payment will be reversed to the credit or debit card you used to purchase the pass. If this happens we will send you an email to let you know we’ve done the reversal. Find out more about topping up your card online.

Make sure you have enough HOP money for travel until your monthly pass activates.
