We want to know if we should build a feature for our website that tells you if Tāmaki Makaurau / Auckland's train lines are running today.

This means these links will not show you train line status yet. You can visit Planned Rail Closures to see information about upcoming rail closures.

Why trains are delayed or cancelled

Unexpected incidents

We can’t plan ahead for everything and sometimes things can go wrong or get broken on the rail network, which means trains get delayed or cancelled while the problem is sorted out.

Important works on our train lines

There's a lot of work we need to do to keep our network maintained and get it ready to handle the increased demand we'll face as our population grows. That means sometimes we need to close parts of the line to do important works that'll make it quicker and easier to travel in the future.

Track maintenance 

Like roads, tracks suffer wear and tear over time. That means sometimes we need to slow trains down to keep them safe until we can repair the damaged tracks. When this happens, trains might be delayed as journey times take longer than normal or cancelled if we need to close lines to do repairs.

Driver shortages and sickness

Sometimes we might need to cancel trains because drivers are sick. We may also need to cancel trains due to general shortages of drivers.
