General information on Citylink fares

Transfer tickets

The ticket you get from the driver (your fare receipt) doubles as a free transfer ticket, allowing you to transfer directly from one route to another route within an hour of boarding the first bus. Present the ticket to the next bus driver. 

Passengers transferring to Oakura, Bell Block or Waitara services pay the higher of the two fares.  Where schedules do not allow a transfer within the hour, your ticket will still be valid, as long as you transfer directly to the first connecting service.

Smart Cards

Want discounted fares? Want to avoid the hassles of carrying cash? Smart Card ticketing is available on all services.

The initial cost is $15 — $5 for the card and $10 worth of travel to get you started. The minimum recharge amount is $5. They can recharged on the bus (cash only) or at Puke Ariki i-SITE, Ariki St Bus Centre, Waitara Library, Bell Block Library or Tranzit Coachlines.

Cards can be obtained from:

  • Puke Ariki i-SITE.
  • Bus Centre Ariki Street, (Dalroy Tours office), between 9.30-3.30pm Monday to Friday
  • Tranzit Coachlines, 15 Sunley St, New Plymouth.

Application forms are also available on Citylink buses, or can be downloaded from this page.
