General information on Citylink fares

Transfers 

Bee Cards: If you tag on to another bus within an hour, no charge will apply for the second trip.  

Cash: 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 Oākura, Bell Block or Waitara services pay the higher of the two fares.
