Bus routes

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Changes have been pro­posed for bus ser­vices trav­el­ling along New North Rd. Auck­land Trans­port and NZ Bus say mak­ing bet­ter use of ser­vices, in­creas­ing fre­quen­cies and sim­pli­fy­ing route num­bers from 14 to five, will re­sult in re­duced wait­ing times. Pas­sen­gers will also be able to more eas­ily iden­tify the bus they re­quire and the changes will re­duce over­crowd­ing on buses. All fu­ture ser­vices will go via St Lukes and will be timetabled to cre­ate a fre­quency of at least one bus ev­ery 15 min­utes be­tween Avon­dale and the city, be­tween 7am and 7pm, Mon­day to Fri­day. Dur­ing peak hours buses will run ap­prox­i­mately ev­ery five min­utes. The changes aim to im­prove trip times through the city cen­tre by tak­ing the in­bound ser­vices via Welles­ley St in­stead of Water­loo Quad­rant and will pro­vide more ca­pac­ity through Kings­land and Eden Ter­race. The pro­posed changes are open for pub­lic feed­back un­til 4pm, Novem­ber 30. For more in­for­ma­tion about the pro­posal and feed­back form visit at.co.nz/ newnorthroad. It is an­tic­i­pated the changes will be im­ple­mented in Fe­bru­ary 2013.
