Metrocard is the cheaper and more convenient way to travel by bus. You don't haveto think about having the right change for the bus and it saves you at least 30% on your trips compared to paying cash.
You can get a metrocard at the Rangiora Library (141 Percival Street, Rangiora) or the Kaiapoi Library (176 Williams Street, Kaiapoi). Metrocard top-ups are also available at these libraries.
'In Waimakariri we’re also reducing the zones so all of Waimakariri will now fall into zone two,' Environment Canterbury commissioner David Bedford said. 'That means for everyone catching a bus to or from Christchurch to Rangiora, Woodend and Pegasus, and within these areas, it will now be cheaper.'
In zone two, which will now be everywhere north of the Waimakariri River, there will be a small increase for those who pay with a Metrocard, while the increase will be a lot higher for those who pay cash when boarding a bus.
An adult Metrocard fare from Christchurch to Waimakriri will increase by 15 cents, while that same route will be an extra 50 cents if cash is used. There is a five cent increase for a child using a Metrocard, but if a child pays with cash it will be an additional 30 cent
The fare changes came in effect on 4 July 2016.
