How it works

AT Local is a rideshare service. This means there might be other customers in the vehicle when you are picked up and other customers may join you during your trip.

You can travel anywhere in the Service Zone during operating hours.

Tell us where you want to go and when

AT Local has no fixed route or timetable.

Book your ride

You can book to travel as soon as possible or up to 7 days in advance.

Walk to your pick-up point

To ensure an easy journey for everyone, you must be at your pick-up point before your ride arrives.

Pay with your AT HOP card

Tap your card on the reader in the vehicle at the start and end of your trip.

Where you can travel

You can use AT Local to travel anywhere in the Service Zone shown on the map, which includes:

  • Waiata Shores
  • Conifer Grove
  • Takaanini
  • Kauri Flats
  • Papakura Town Centre

AT Local cannot pick you up or drop you off outside the Service Zone.

There are almost 400 pick-up and drop-off points in the Service Zone. Your pick-up and drop-off points will be confirmed when you book.

There will be a short walk (around 150 metres or 3 minutes) to and from your pick-up and drop-off points. AT Local is not a door-to-door service.

You won’t be able to make an AT Local booking for a trip that you could make using the 33 or 365 bus services. To get somewhere outside the Service Zone, use AT Local to get to Takaanini or Papakura stations or a bus stop. Use AT’s Journey Planner or AT Mobile to plan your journey.

If you need to get somewhere by a specific time, use the “Arrive by” setting in the AT Local app or let the call centre know when you book.

Paying with AT HOP

Tap your AT HOP card on the reader in the vehicle at the start and end of your trip.

You can use AT Local with AT's buses, trains and ferries. As long as there's no more than 30 minutes between trips (e.g. between tagging off AT Local and tagging onto a bus or train), you'll pay one fare for your total journey.

All our usual concessions are accepted, including Child, Secondary, Tertiary and SuperGold, and you’ll automatically save 10% when you travel at off-peak times. Find out more about AT’s fares and concessions and use our Journey Planner to confirm your fare.

Why ride with AT Local


Our drivers are trained professionals. You'll be given your vehicle's licence plate number when you book. Our AT Local branded vehicles are easy to spot.


Sharing your ride with other customers helps keep AT Local affordable, protects the environment and reduces congestion.


AT Local can accommodate folding wheelchairs, but you’ll need to be able to get yourself and your wheelchair into and out of the vehicle. We’re investigating alternative vehicles, so AT Local will be fully accessible in the future.
