WiFi for Auckland


AT Hop card holders will soon be able to access free WiFi at bus terminals

WiFi will be phased into Auckland bus terminals over the next few months as the service launches at train stations.

Free WiFi internet access will be launched at train stations on May 26 following the introduction of Auckland’s new electric trains.

WiFi is scheduled to be phased onto the network’s 14 ferry wharfs and 11 bus terminals over the coming months.

Auckland Transport, in conjunction with Telecom New Zealand, is initially introducing the service for eligible registered AT HOP users at 40 train stations on its public transport network.

Auckland Transport Chief Operating Officer Greg Edmonds says they are pleased to be partnering with Telecom to bring this added value service to our registered AT HOP card customers.

"We are always looking at ways to improve and add value to the public transport experience for our customers.

"WiFi at our train stations offers customers an opportunity to check out emails, Facebook, Buzzfeed and the like or to kick start their working or study day".

Edmonds says WiFi on trains, buses and ferries is also being reviewed as a possibility in the future, dependent on technology.

Eligible AT HOP users will be able to access free WiFi with no daily time limit, although a data usage cap of 1GB per day will apply.

 Customers without an AT HOP card will be able to connect to the free WiFi service for 10 minutes a day.

To connect to the service, customers can log-on using the last seven digits on their AT HOP card, no matter who their current mobile provider is.
