Integrated Ticketing Saga
The site has recorded the long slow trek to Auckland getting integrated ticketing.
Jon C recorded four years of debate about it which you can read by accessing “HOP” at the top navigation bar.
Since he left for Brisbane and stopped blogging, there has been further development around July-September 2012 with Thales taking over the development of NZ Bus integration, turnstiles being installed at Britomart and Newmarket (above), independent bus owners signing on to Thales and a date of October 28 set for an AT HOP card for rail to be followed by its use on ferries.
Integration with all modes is now timed from April 2013.
Volunteers updating the site will from time to time add more updates and photos.
