Travel card to be used in Auckland

3:59 pm on 16 December 2010

Aucklanders will soon have their own intergrated travel card to use on buses, trains and ferries around the region.

Auckland Transport will introduce the Snapper card early next year for the bus network.

It is expected to include trains and ferries in time for the 2011 Rugby World Cup.

About 150,000 people are using the travel card in Wellington.
