HOP offers a number of benefits to public transport users:
HOP makes getting around easier! The HOP Card allows you to travel on any North Star, WakaPacific, Go West, Metrolink and LINK bus.
No need for change! The days of coins jangling in your pockets are over. Just top up your HOP Card at any retailer displaying the HOP or Snapper sign.
HOP for faster travel! Using your HOP Card makes boarding faster and easier. You no longer have to wait for a ticket or change from the driver. Simply Tag On by touching your card flat and still to the reader console as you enter the bus and Tag Off in the same way before you exit the bus.
HOP with a fare type that suits you! HOP Cards are available to suit your needs. You can load your HOP Card with either e-money or 10 Trips.
HOP and save money! When you Tag On and Tag Off, the system takes care of the rest and ensures that the correct fare is paid every time. You receive at least 10% off the cash fare by using a HOP Card.
HOP protection. If you register your HOP Card and it is ever lost or stolen, your balance is protected from the time you report it to us. Register now!
