An increase in bus, train and ferry fares came into effect from January 29.

Auckland Transport reviews fares annually to ensure they keep pace with operating costs and a portion of cost recovery from fares.

Colin Homan, Group Manager, AT Development says AT aims to recover 50 percent of the cost of public transport from fares, but this is currently at 46.3 percent.

He says even though the average fare increase is 1.7 percent, the average cost of travel for customers remains lower than it was at this time last year.
