Many Auckland public transport users will get cheaper trips from mid-August under the biggest shake-up yet of the fare system.
The new deals for those using the city's electronic AT HOP travel card include the ability to pay a single fare even for longer journeys involving several transfers.
A simplified zone system around the city will lower fares for some passengers travelling longer distances.
There will be a new $18 day pass covering all services other than ferries going beyond the inner harbour.
The introduction of the Simplified Fare system on 14 August brings the first major fare benefits enabled by the introduction of the $100 million AT HOP electronic ticketing system.
Auckland Transport said 87 percent of journeys are now made with the card, and the benefits over cash fares will be significant.
On a two-zone journey transferring from bus to train, an adult will pay $8 in cash or just $3.10 if using a card.
At weekends children under 15 will be able to travel for up to 4 hours for 99 cents, on an AT HOP card.
