Overview

The Auckland Transport (AT) Retail Strategy is the strategic blue-print for AT’s retail offer and was approved on 3rd August 2015, including a staged implementation programme. It aims to enhance the customer experience, increase non-fare revenue, and attract more people onto public transport. There are approximately 65 AT Metro public transport facilities (rail stations, ferry terminals, busway facilities).

One of the biggest single opportunities to create an immediate valued customer amenity not previously offered across the network is the deployment of appropriate convenience vending machines to vend food and beverage offerings in line with the ‘AT Metro Food and Beverage Policy for Vending’.

AT conducted a successful trial in nine stations around the network. The trials proved successful with strong customer use and no operational interference for AT Metro, as well as generating a promising value of additional non-fare revenue.
As a result of the successful outcomes of the trial a widespread ‘network’ deployment has been approved by the AT Senior Leadership.

Auckland Transport has identified approximately 50 locations throughout the public transport network (plus a few additional AT asset locations) suitable for vending.

The desired outcome of this process is to identify a suitable partner or partners to deploy vending machines at each location establishing a ‘side by side’ paired machine configuration with compatible food and beverage offerings suitable for AT’s customer “on the move”. This will result in over 100 machines as the total deployment.
