Two Cityhop carshare cars are now available for you to use, which offers a great alternative to households needing to own more than one car. If you have a regular weekly trip to a sports activity or supermarket, occasional visits to clients, meeting friends for dinner etc. or have an overnight trip, the Cityhop car can be used.


The Cityhop cars have designated carspaces. There is one on Hobsonville Point Road, near the corner of Baffin Street (a block over from Brickworks). The other is on Hastings Street by the Catalina Café. These are clearly marked ‘Cityhop cars only at all times’.

Cityhop also has cars in central Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch. When you become a Cityhop member, you have access to cars in these locations too.


Membership is normally $120 a year, however, Cityhop has introduced a special Hobsonville Point membership of half that regular price until December 2015. For $60 you will get a years membership (shorter memberships are also available). A membership covers a family and you can still have multiple cards.

Cars cost $15 per hour, $75 for the day including petrol, or $30 overnight.


Cityhop is easy to use. To book a car, you can phone Alex on 0800 2 CITYHOP or 09 374 5081, or book online at by the hour or by the day. Fuel is already included in the cost for hire. You can watch a video to see how easy it is.
