Use public transport to get to work
Using public transport to get to work can be relaxing and help to improve your health and wellbeing. You will get to meet people who live in your community, see what’s happening in your neighbourhood, use your mobile phone, and enjoy the scenery. You can make your trip using public transport more active by walking to the next stop.
The AT Journey Planner can help you to plan your journey to work, using the bus, train or ferry.
AT HOP Card
The AT HOP card is a prepay card for travel on buses, trains and ferries around Auckland. The AT HOP card enables you to save money on fares – at least 20% discount off single trip cash fares (excludes NiteRider and SkyBus services and Waiheke ferry services).
Transport is one of the biggest challenges facing businesses in Auckland. There are many advantages to encouraging workers to use public transport:
- more options for staff to get to and from work,
- reduces demand for parking,
- health benefits: walking to and from the bus stop or train station is an easy way to exercise and burn calories,
- less traffic congestion around the workplace.
To be eligible for these packages, your workplace needs to have more than 100 employees or be part of a business association/network.
