Wellington

Wellington’s compact CBD makes it a great place to walk! But there are also plenty of public transport options. To pay your fare on Wellington's transport network, you can use cash or a range of prepay cards(opens in new window) (depending on which bus company you'll be using). See how to pay your fare(opens in new window) for more information.

Auckland

Auckland’s downtown area is compact and walkable, but its natural beauty lies outside the city centre. 

The ATHop card(opens in new window) is Auckland's prepay transport card; it will save you money on transport if you're planning to be in the city for a few days.
