Electronic ticket gates to help reduce fare evasion
Electronic ticket gates have been installed at Ōtāhuhu Station and began operating on 15 August.
The new gates are intended to improve safety and reduce fare evasion.
Customers must have a valid AT HOP card or paper ticket to access the train platform to catch a train. Customers arriving by train at Ōtāhuhu Station will also need a valid AT HOP card or paper ticket to exit through the gates. If you arrive without one you will need to return to the station where you boarded to buy one.
Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board Chair Lemauga Lydia Sosene welcomes Auckland Transport’s ongoing investment at Ōtāhuhu station to improve safety for commuters.
“A big goal for our local board is to make sure people have access to quality, well-connected and safe public transport and we have made some great strides with the opening of the station last year, bus station upgrades at Māngere and a range of other improvements.”
Electronic ticket gates make it simpler for bus and train journeys, with a single fare being charged for each journey, even if customers take several buses or trains to get to their destination.
