Strike action scheduled for Monday 23 to Friday 27 April involving drivers for NZ Bus has been withdrawn by First Union and Tramways Union.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.

Use the journey planner to plan an alternative trip, under advanced options select the service operator. Ensure Go West, Metrolink and North Star are not selected. 

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

Note: CityLink and InnerLink services will continue to operate during the disruption.

Policy for parking permits

Auckland Transport's parking strategy (adopted in May 2015) provides a fair and consistent approach to managing parking in Auckland. The strategy contains a policy for issuing parking permits, establishing clear criteria to ensure they are only issued to organisations that need them to carry out critical or important work.

Under the policy, AT will only offer these parking permit categories:

  • Critical services permit.
  • Residential permit.
  • Event permit.
  • Authorised vehicles parking permit.

Permits that don’t fit into the new permit categories are being phased out. We will transition all existing parking permits to the new permit categories by mid 2016.
