Rosedale Busway Station Rosedale Busway Station

We’re under way with plans to build a new bus station on the North Shore at Rosedale. The new bus station will connect people and businesses with rapid public transport as well as improved walking and cycling options, helping more people travel between Rosedale and the CBD, Takapuna, Albany and the Hibiscus Coast. 

Project status: Pre-construction
Project zone: North

Project overview

AT’s new bus station, located at Rosedale, will connect more people and businesses with the popular Northern Busway. The project will deliver better public transport and walking and cycling options to and from Rosedale.

With approximately 5,200 people working within walking distance of the new station, the location is expected provide reliable travel options for more than 4,000 people every day.

Funding for the new station comes from Auckland Council and Waka Kotahi’s Public Transport Infrastructure funding programme.

Project details


  • The new station will connect the Northern Busway and local bus services offering reliable options for getting to and from Rosedale/Albany.
  • The station design integrates cycling facilities and connections to local walking and cycling paths to give Aucklanders more choice when travelling.
  • We’ll improve traffic flows along busy Rosedale Road by building dedicated bus lanes separating bus stops from local traffic between Tawa Drive and Triton Drive.
  • The station will deliver reliable and accessible public transport services for over 4,000 people per day and provide more options to travel to work for over 5,000 people working within walking distance of the station location.


The multi-story station will be accessed from Rosedale Road and Arrenway Drive. The design includes local service bus stops on Rosedale Road separated from traffic lanes, drop-off and pick-up areas, and dedicated parking spaces for operational and mobility access car parks.

The new busway station will also include a range of planting and landscaping features using native plants as much as possible. We are working in partnership with mana whenua to ensure features and artwork at the station reflect the history of this area.

People can access the station by foot, by bike and on local buses, which will have increased frequency and additional routes once the station opens. Undercover secure bike parking facilities have been incorporated into the design.

After a thorough investigation, in consultation with residents and local businesses, we decided not to include a Park and Ride facility at the new station, to avoid attracting cars to the already busy Rosedale area. We will work with residents and businesses on nearby street-parking solutions before the opening so that the station does not increase congestion in the area.

Upgrades to Rosedale Road

To make sure it’s easy and safe to get to and from the new station, we’ll also make some improvements to Rosedale Road between Tawa Drive and Triton Drive. These include:

  • improving traffic flows along Rosedale Road by building a bus lane between Tawa Drive and Triton Drive
  • making it safer for people to walk to and from the station by installing traffic lights and pedestrian crossings on the Tawa Drive and Triton Drive intersections with Rosedale Road
  • providing safe ways for people to access the station via new separated walking and cycling paths on Rosedale Road between Tawa Drive and Triton Drive.
