How It’s Looking: Tag Off Posts(Update)
Crop circles on Morningside station?
But as the Double Rainbow guy would say..what does it mean?
AKT popped back to Morningside this morning to see how the ducting ands cabling for the tag on tag off devices was going.
Here’s what we found:
Tag posts will be on all train stations and if you forget to tag off or sneak by, it will remember you next time and probably penalise you by deducting a full fare not any discounted one or impose a penalty.
Tag posts have started appearing in some buses and are in both the front and back. They will be in use about sometime March before the trains.
Britomart and Newmarket train stations will use gates.
A Suburban newspaper report quotes Auckland Transport saying a $1m marketing campaign will be launched but the name is still “secret” and will “be released with the pre-launch awareness campaign.”
I actually like the rumoured Hop(p) for a name but wish it was something distinctively Kiwi with at least Maori or Pacific Island overtones like the Waka card.
Here are photos from various locations :
