Snapper News April 1 Fare Update

April 1 Fare Update

Kia ora Snapper cardholders,
As you may be aware, over the weekend (on April 1st) there was an update to all Metlink fares. Included in this update was an increase to the off-peak fare discount.
Due to a collection of card readers not receiving the fare update data in time, there are some customers who will have been charged at the old fares. For those travelling off-peak, this will mean they were overcharged. (If you travelled during peak times, you will have received a lesser fare and you don’t need to do anything).
We will be processing refunds for all those overcharged, and this will be completed by the end of today. If this includes you – you don’t need to do anything. The overcharge amount will simply be credited back to your card and the credit will collect the next time you check your balance or top up.
If you were overcharged and you’re not credited by the end of today (Monday April 3rd 2023) – please get in touch with us ( and we will get it sorted for you.
Thanks for your patience, and feel free to get in touch with any questions.
Team Snapper
