How to get around Auckland
There are numerous taxi services around Auckland ready to get you to your next destination in no time. Taking Auckland taxis remains the most direct way to move around town and is especially useful if you do find yourself running late for something unmissable. Don't forget that ridesharing services like Uber also operate in Auckland.
The best way to take advantage of Auckland public transport is by getting yourself an AT HOP card, a prepaid travel card. Having one of these cards will give you access to every train, bus and ferry in the city, meaning you can get anywhere you need to go at a moment's notice.
Given its smaller size compared to other world cities, walking Auckland is one of the best ways to see the city up close, get a little exercise in, and still get where you're going on time – especially if you're staying in the CBD. Make the most of the city's beautiful weather and head out on foot. You never know what you'll find.
Maybe where you're going is a little further than would be feasible to walk, but still not far enough to warrant a drive. Locate one of the many Auckland Bike Hire locations, get yourself a bicycle, and head off! Return the bike to any of the rental bike racks throughout the city when you're done.
