Where can we take you?

Auckland - Getting Around

Auckland is well served by public transport - but the city’s unregulated tangle of various competing operators can be confusing at first. It also means you’re never too far from a train or bus stop - but you’ll find that public transport is easier to use if you’re travelling north-south than it is if you’re wanting to cross the city east to west.

Many of the city’s main thoroughfares have services running around every 15 minutes during the day.

The Britomart Transport Centre on the corner of Queen Street and Customs Street is the main information centre for public transportation. Call in here for free bus, train or ferry schedules.

The Auckland Discovery Pass can be purchased for around $14 and provides travel on all forms of public transportation in Auckland, except the Fullers ferries and the Airbus to the airport.

Bus

Stagecoach is one of the city’s biggest operators with routes to all parts of town, with The Link offering services into the city’s suburbs and beyond, the Metrolink service running around the city centre and the free City Circuit bus operating throughout the CBD (Central Business District).

Bus fares are measured in stages, with one stage being around $2. Due to the confusing array of competing operators, bus passes are really only of use if you’re sure to be travelling on the one operator’s routes during your stay - best to be safe and pay in cash when you travel.

Train

Recent investment has seen Auckland’s three train lines improving their service considerably and now the train is a good way to dart around the city and its outer suburbs.

The three lines are the Eastern, Southern and Western Lines. There are no train services on the North Shore. Trains run every 10 minutes on-peak, 15 minutes off-peak and 30 minutes evenings and weekends, stopping at around midnight.

Fares start at around $2 for a station-to-station hop in the CBD.

Taxis

Auckland has a good fleet of taxis, with ranks situated throughout the CBD. Expect to pay around $2 for a pick up and around $2 for each kilometre thereafter, with fares having a surcharge after midnight and from/to the airport.
