Where to buy ferry tickets

Single trip paper tickets

  • You need to buy a ticket before you board or tag on with your AT HOP card for your travel. You will be required to present your ticket to staff as you board the ferry.
  • This will provide you with a consistent experience across all services and minimise the need for cash transactions. 
  • Ticket machines are located at ferry terminals across the network, except Northcote Point. If you are travelling to and from Te Onewa Northcote Point, you will need to purchase a paper ticket when you depart or arrive at the Downtown Ferry Terminal.
  • Most machines accept cash, credit card (Visa or Mastercard) or Eftpos.
