Changes to some Auckland bus services Changes to some Auckland bus services

From Sunday 13 October 2019, there will be some timetable changes to North Shore, Rodney, Central and West Auckland bus routes and the launch of the new bus network on Waiheke Island.

These changes are to add some bus trips where needed, remove some where patronage is low, improve connections between services, and improve reliability of services.

If you use these buses you may need to re-plan your journey. You can check the AT Journey Planner or AT Mobile for the updated timetables.

Other minor changes are being made to timetables so that they better reflect the actual running times of buses.
