Customers since 2008 "It's so easy -- we are just really well looked after" CON0347 11/10-2AD Auck Health& well-being Advertising Feature Just the ticket for transport By RHIANNON HORRELL Whether it be the Hop Card, the Waka Card, the Trip Snapper or Mako -- a highly anticipated integrated ticketing system is coming to Auckland. Auckland Transport is plan- ning an awareness campaign next month for the single-ticket system which would allow access on buses, trains and fer- ries. The card will be available initially on NZ Bus services which include North Star, Waka Pacific, Metrolink, Link and Go West buses, and Hop Card has been tipped as the likely name for the system. The Campaign For Better Transport has launched a nam- ing forum on its website for the card and so far Mako has 15 votes, Waka Card has three and Trip Snapper has one. The concept for the single card system is part of the Auck- land Integrated Fares System and the second stage will be introduced via a tourist product for the Rugby World Cup in September. Supercity mayor Len Brown says the progress is a signifi- cant step towards improving public transport and making it easier for locals and visitors to move around the city. It s vital that our buses, fer- ries and trains are well linked if our public transport system is to be as effective as it needs to be. Auckland Transport external communications manager Sha- ron Hunter says the card will have a capital cost of $6.4 million and a marketing cam- paign will cost about $1m. This includes customer ser- vice training, street ambassadors, web development, retail sell-in and point of sale, advertising and marketing col- lateral. We are spending what is required to insure strong levels of awareness, under- standing and take-up of the product. The card will have a brand name. This will be released with the pre-launch awareness campaign. The name has been deter- mined following extensive focus group research of a number of options. A participation agreement has been signed between Auck- land Transport, NZ Bus and Snapper Services, which cur- rently operates a ticketing sys- tem in Wellington. Auckland Transport chief executive David Warburton says the agreement will sup- plement a contract signed last year with French electronics company Thales, in partnership with the Bank of New Zealand and Transfield services, to pro- vide the system.
