AT Hop Monthly Pass

AT Have announced that the Monthly Pass is going to go up from $140 to $200 dollars from the 31st of July and it going from being a single Zone to a multi zone.  At the moment there is an introductory offer to buy the new multi-zone monthly pass at $140.

Up to I have been buying the monthly pass at $140 and traveling 3 zones and it was cost effective. With the price rise it will no longer be cost effective for me.

The state on their page “It is likely that you would have to make over 45 journeys in a month under simpler fares to spend more than $140 using HOP money, so a better option might be to use HOP money rather than buy a new all-zones monthly pass for $200.”

That is a rather simplistic view and does not make it easy to work out if a monthly pass is cost effective for you.  Below is a table that does.

Red = Not cost effective for monthly pass rather than eMoney
Orange = Cost for $140 monthly pass rather than eMoney
Green = Cost effective for $200 monthly pass rather than eMoney
Note: The “monthly pass” is actually a 30 day pass from the day you actually start using it.
