Two new bus services will operate from Sunday 24 February 2019:
- 998 between Wellsford and Warkworth, via State Highway 1 (the Dome Valley). This service will run hourly, seven days a week
- 128 between Helensville, Kaukapakapa, Waitoki and Hibiscus Coast Station, seven days a week. This service will run to a 90-minute frequency on weekdays, and to a two-hour frequency on weekends and public holidays.
These are the first bus services in Auckland to be funded by a local board targeted rate. The Rodney Local Board has used the Rodney Transport Targeted Rate to fund the associated capital works, including new bus stops and customer information signage. The operational costs associated with these services will be covered by the Rate and fares. These services will be run as a trial for a maximum of three years. After that time, the future of these services will be considered.
