Dear John REQ158678 Concession structure ‐ University concession on Bee Card
Your request for information was transferred to us from the Hamilton City Council. Your request
: I would like to know any proposed fare and concession structures for the upcoming Bee card.
Will the student and staff of the University of Waikato still have concession using Bee card
We can confirm the concession for students and staff of the University of Waikato will be available under
the new ticketing system.
When the Bee Card system launches, many bus fares will change. Within Hamilton the university
smartcard fare will go from $1.70 to $1.85. The university concession will need to be loaded onto a
passenger’s Bee Card in order to receive the discount.
There are also a number of fare changes to our regional services as well as we move to the new zonal
system. The University of Waikato concession is still retained as a 30% discount off the adult smartcard
fare, many of which will reduce.
Please use this link to view the new fare map and proposed fare structure.
