We Say, You Say: Public Transport Fares

The Team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Mōrena Auckland,

What do you think about the incoming increased public transport fares?

On Monday, Auckland Council announced a 4 percent increase for peak-time travel with a discount approved for off-peak travel.

According to Auckland Transport (AT), some passengers would be paying an extra 35 cents per trip, with a daily maximum spend of $20 per day which for some, would mean an unlimited daily pass.

Former AT chairman Dr Lester Levy advocated for fare freezes have not been heeded in the 2021 review.
