Question for people who take the bus in Auckland. I'm moving to Te Atatu Peninsula and can't believe how much it will cost for a monthly pass. Either $215 for an All Zone pass (because I'm going from West to the City - it's not that far!) or $201 if I used the HOP card. Minor saving but still...
Are there any cheaper payment options? I'm travelling to the city and back for work, 5 days a week sort of thing.
Also, for something recently released and touted to revolutionise transport, I can ONLY top up my card by going to a physical location. No online top up. I'm so used to doing things online e.g. power, internets and mobile so this is just a bit odd (and inconvenient.)
Maybe the lady I spoke with from Maxx was wrong? Maybe this page is wrong?
Oh, and lets not forget that next year I'd need to replace the card with the AT card... rar! :(
Anyway, just want to cover all my bases and get second, third etc opinions before I decide which way to go. Either way it'll still be better than paying for parking, paying for petrol and getting stuck in evening rush hour traffic.
