The Rail and Maritime Trade Union (RMTU) has given notice of its intent to commence industrial action from Monday 26 February to Friday 16 March.

Auckland Transport and Transdev have developed a temporary timetable to minimise disruption and provide consistent rail services on these lines during this period.

Customers can expect Southern, Western and Eastern line weekday peak train services at 20-minute intervals, with inter-peak and off-peak services running as normal. Many trains on these services will run with six cars, which can hold 900 passengers, to help reduce impact.

Onehunga and Pukekohe weekday train services and weekend train services across all lines will remain on their usual timetable.

Ferry and bus services will operate as normal.

Fall in love with public transport

Need more ME time? Sit back and relax. Keep up on social media, check your emails, read a book, study or catch up with friends. No more traffic jams and never worry about finding a car park again.

Some unis are making it easy to travel from one campus to another for your lectures and social events. Leave your car behind and jump on a shuttle bus to travel between campuses at AUT, Unitec and Massey.

Get home safely with the NiteRider on a Friday or Saturday night out.

*The AT HOP card provides at least 20% discount off single trip cash fares (excludes NiteRider, SkyBus and Waiheke ferry services).

Fall in love with Cycling

Walking and cycling are not always the slowest ways to get to uni. Cycling may be the quickest way if you live within 6 kilometres, the distance an average student can cycle in half an hour. You may also be able to extend your journey by combining a ride with public transport.

Avoid traffic jams, get some fresh air and never worry about finding car park again.

Fall in love with Carpooling

So many empty seats! Find friends who need a ride, or ride along with someone. Share the cost (and the stress) and avoid traffic using the transit lanes.

Who knew getting to uni could actually be fun? Make new friends and socialise. Find matches online and keep up to date with competitions and news on Facebook.

Speed up your journey by using transit lanes, checking traffic congestion before you leave or by following us on Twitter @AklTransport.

And many unis have priority carparks for carpoolers to reduce the hassle of finding a park.

Keep safe and know your road rules.
