LINK Bus Fares Announced


Fare structures for Auckland’s newest bus services, the Outer, Inner and City LINK bus services have been revealed. They begin operating on Sunday August 21.

  •  The new Inner LINK service, which replaces the existing LINK service, will retain a flat $1.80 fare
  • For the new Outer LINK bus service, customers will pay no more than the standard two stage fare of $3.40 which will connect central suburbs including Herne Bay, Pt Chevalier, St Lukes, Mt Eden and Newmarket.
  • The new City LINK bus will remain free until the end of this year as part of the service introduction period. From 1 January 2012, the City LINK will remain free to HOP card users and cost 50 cents for other full-fare cash paying passengers with other concessions for school students, children and seniors.
  • HOP card users receive an additional discount of at least 10%

    I’ll be interested to see how the outer Link works.

  2. Owen Thompson says:

    Wonder how long it is estimated for the Outer Link to make a circuit.

  3. Cam says:

    These fares are very reasonable. 10% seems a good incentive to get a hop card.

  4. David says:

    The City Link being free is also another GREAT incentive to get a hop card.

  5. Bryan says:

    Wondered what the orange and red buses hiding out in a corner of the Swanson depot were for. :-)

    Along with the dead hybrids. :-(

  6. Tim says:

    Does anyone know how this change in services affects those of us using Rail passes on central area buses? Link used to be excluded (pretty silly really)m so I’m guessing at least one of the new link services will be excluded. I really hope it’s not both…
