Waikato Regional Council adopted a variation to the Waikato Regional Public Transport Plan 2015-25 (RPTP) on 22 February 2018.

This variation sets out the amendments to sections 6.3.1 (fares and ticketing system) and 6.3.2 (fare concessions) of the RPTP to enable the introduction of a new zone fare structure, an improved ticketing system and a range of fare products to encourage greater use of public transport and electronic ticketing.

What's changing, and when?

As part of the variation, a series of fare initiatives will be introduced in late 2018 (to coincide with the implementation of a new electronic ticketing system).

These include:

  • Implementing a zone fare structure that covers the entire region.
  • Simplifying and rationalising existing ticketing products and standardising smartcard discount rates across all services within the region.
  • Expanding provision of free transfers across all services within the region.
  • Standardising concession discount rates across all services.
  • Introducing daily and weekly fare caps for smartcard users on all Hamilton transport services.
