Strike action scheduled for next week involving drivers for NZ Bus has been withdrawn by First Union and Tramways Union.

However, drivers will meet on Tuesday (24 April) to ratify the settlement to the dispute. This meeting means NZ Bus services will be cancelled after morning peak. Services on Tuesday will be disrupted between 9:30am and 2:30pm, some services immediately before or after this could also be affected.

Bus services run by other operators are not affected and train and ferry services will run as usual on Tuesday.

Auckland Transport would like to thank our customers for their patience.

Urban bike skills Urban bike skills

The Urban bike Skills course is an introduction to riding safely in the suburbs for adults. Embarking on shared paths and quiet roads, this course will introduce you to what’s available by bike in each area.

Have you been to one of our bike skills drop-in sessions, or do you want to take your riding to the next level exploring cycle routes and learning safe road skills in your suburb?

We have planned a 4 hour course, starting in school grounds where we can practice some basic skills before heading out to explore the local area by bike.

We’ll be going through how to choose safe routes, bike handling skills and communicating with other road/path users. By the end of the session you can expect to have learned some skills that you can use anywhere you ride in urban Auckland.

Course numbers are very limited, working in small groups to ensure our instructors can build your personal confidence.
