From 19 April - All Massey University staff & students will be required to have a registered Bee Card in order access their Massey concessions and get free travel on the buses.  If you do not have a Bee Card yet, please see the below instructions.

Step 1: Get a Bee Card from Campus Operations
Step 2: Register an account on beecard.co.nz and register your Bee Card to your account
Step 3: Register for your Massey concession through the student portal
Step 4: Wait 1-2 business days, then check your concession has been loaded by signing into your account on beecard.co.nz BEFORE you take the bus. If you ride the bus before your concession has been loaded, it will charge you the adult fare for your trip, which is non-refundable.
