Auckland's cycle network

Discover Auckland using the growing network of shared paths, on road and protected cycle lanes and quiet routes. We're building more cycleways to connect you to your local town centre, public transport, schools and places of work.

Pedestrian Cut-Throughs

Did you know there are lots of hidden walkways through the City Centre? 80 to be exact. These ‘cut-throughs’ are public shortcuts through or between buildings that connect one street to another. They can get you to your destination quicker or keep you drier along your journey. Some you may already be using, others are less obvious to find.

Shared paths

Across our range of maps and rides there are a number of different types of infrastructure highlighted, including shared paths.

These are exactly that; paths shared by all users on all kinds of mobility, including people walking or on bikes, pushchairs, scooters, and more. They are often found within local reserves or can be specially marked paths.

If you are looking for even more places to explore, then check out the Auckland Council AKL Paths for a huge range of walkways, trails and cycling routes across the city.
