The Rail and Maritime Trade Union (RMTU) has given notice of its intent to commence industrial action from Monday 26 February to Friday 16 March.

Auckland Transport and Transdev have developed a temporary timetable to minimise disruption and provide consistent rail services on these lines during this period.

Customers can expect Southern, Western and Eastern line weekday peak train services at 20-minute intervals, with inter-peak and off-peak services running as normal. Many trains on these services will run with six cars, which can hold 900 passengers, to help reduce impact.

Onehunga and Pukekohe weekday train services and weekend train services across all lines will remain on their usual timetable.

Ferry and bus services will operate as normal.

2018 Auckland Bike Challenge 2018 Auckland Bike Challenge

Auckland Transport is holding its annual Auckland Bike Challenge in February 2018 as part of the national Aotearoa Bike Challenge.


This free, month-long event runs from 1-28 February and aims at getting more people cycling in Auckland.

By registering for the Auckland Bike Challenge, you’ll be competing amongst participating workplaces, offices and peers throughout New Zealand.


To join this year’s challenge, simply register online and cycle for at least 10 minutes anywhere, anytime during the month of February. Everyone can take part - it doesn’t matter if you haven’t ridden in years! This includes current cyclists as well as those new to cycling who are interested in giving it a go.


The challenge focusses on participation, not distance, to ensure a fair competition that encourages new and occasional riders, along with regular riders. Just log your ride through the simple online platform. Each ride recorded increases your organisation’s score and gives staff a chance to win fantastic prizes.


Encourage healthy competition at your workplace.

There are lots of great prizes including a trip to Italy or San Francisco, electric bikes, bike gear and more! Plus keep an eye out for weekly spot prizes being drawn throughout February.

The challenge also helps to promote company health & wellbeing programmes and sustainability initiatives by growing the cycling community, promoting cycle safety, and helping to build the case for better cycling facilities. Each time a car trip is converted to a bike trip, it takes one more car off the road, reducing congestion and CO2 emissions!
