Voela Transport Auckland is Auckland?s railway operator. Fares vary ? depending on the number of stages you travel ? from $ 1.40 to 9.10.

A Day Rover Pass for unlimited travel after 9am during the week and anytime during the weekend is available for $ 10 and a family pass for $ 20. A Discovery Pass ($ 13) includes unlimited bus travel on most buses.

If you have no idea which ticket you need you can also purchase one on the train?

Although the number of routes is limited and some ? for example the new one to Helensville ? are only serviced twice a day or so, it makes sense to use the train for certain trips. A good one, for example, is the trip from Downtown (Britomart) to Mt. Eden. It takes only between 10 and 12 minutes.

When you know where you want to go get onto the MAXX website and calculate your journey, and you also get the timetables there within seconds.

In general you can say that the trains are good to get to outlying destinations where you will not get train service to most points of interest in the city.
