From Sunday 30 October, all South Auckland bus services will change. There will be new bus routes, new timetables, more buses more often and for some people the need to transfer to a train to complete their journey.
More than 119,000 homes across South Auckland have now been mailed a bus information pack from Auckland Transport.
South Aucklanders are encouraged to familiarise themselves with their new bus route and timetable so they don’t miss the bus.
Auckland Transport are hosting a series of public information events. Visitors can talk to staff behind the changes, pick up extra timetables and get help planning their new travel journeys. Or they can use the online Journey Planner.
