Aucklanders to have more travel choice with rapid transit network

Published on : Wednesday, April 20, 2016

transit networkThanks to Auckland Transport’s plan for an expanded rapid transit network, Aucklanders will have more travel choice and a reliable, frequent and connected service free from congestion.

 

The proposed rapid transit network includes rail, light rail and busways which are completely or mostly separate to traffic. It is high frequency, at least every 10 minutes, and offers very reliable journey times.

 

New rapid transit services are targeted at areas where a lot of residential and employment growth is planned. This includes both existing urban Auckland and areas identified as future housing and business areas – for example around Kumeu and Whenuapai, Silverdale, Drury and Pukekohe.

 

The aim is to connect large numbers of people with areas that will have large numbers of jobs.

 

The rapid transit network will be connected to a network of frequent buses (at least every 15 minutes, 7am to 7pm every day) by stations that make it easy to transfer. These have already been built at Panmure and New Lynn, with new stations being built or well advanced in planning at Manukau, Otahuhu and Rosedale.

 

Simplified fares, being introduced later this year, will make it easier and cheaper to connect between different services with an AT HOP card.
