New Network for North Shore New Network for North Shore

On 30 September 2018, Auckland Transport will launch a new bus network for the North Shore.

There will be new bus routes and new timetables. There will be new bus stops, while some existing bus stops will close.

Many existing bus users will need to re-plan their usual journeys and take different buses, possibly from different stops.

The New Network on the North Shore will be part of a simpler, more integrated public transport network for Auckland.

What this means for the North Shore

Auckland’s old bus network tried to run bus services from everywhere to everywhere else. This resulted in a complicated bus network made up of many, often infrequent, services.

As our population continues to grow, Auckland Transport needs to make some bold changes to the bus network to keep the North Shore moving.

We have designed a simpler bus network. There will be fewer routes, but there will be buses coming more often (particularly 7am-7pm) 7 days a week, and services will be better connected.

The New Network will help make public transport a more attractive option for more people.

You may need to transfer between services to complete some journeys. Fewer areas will have direct services to the city centre. There will be better connections with the Northern Busway where you will be able to transfer to frequent services to the city centre.

Northern Busway services

While the Northern Express will continue to be the backbone of the North Shore bus network, we are making some changes.

NX1

The existing Northern Express gets a new route number - NX1. This service will continue to connect Hibiscus Coast station, Albany station, Constellation station, Sunnynook station, Smales Farm station, Akoranga station and Britomart (Lower Albert Street).

Albany station buses will run:

  • At least every 5 minutes at peak times.
  • At least every 10-15 minutes at other times.

Hibiscus Coast station buses will run:

  • At least every 6-10 minutes at peak times.
  • At least every 30 minutes at other times.

NX2

A new, second Northern Express service, NX2, will run between Albany station, Constellation station, Sunnynook station, Smales Farm station, Akoranga station, Wellesley Street and city universities.

Buses will run:

  • At least every 5 minutes at peak times.
  • At least every 10-15 minutes at other times.

This service will run four trips after midnight.

941

The 941 will connect Smales Farm station, the Glenfield shops and Beach Haven. Customers travelling from the city centre to Glenfield or Beach Haven will need to take the NX1 and transfer to the 941 at Smales Farm station. 

This service will run four trips after midnight.

  • Changed 21 of the 40 proposed services.
  • Added two services.
  • Removed one of the proposed services.
  • Changed the running hours or frequency of 15 of the proposed services.

Some of the changes we have made to the original proposals include:

  • Retention of a service that runs mainly along Beach Road from Torbay to the North Shore Hospital and Takapuna – the 856.
  • Introduction of a service along Glamorgan Dr and Weatherly Road to Browns Bay - the 878.
  • Introduction of a peak-times service between Albany station and Corinthian Dr – the 890.
  • Introduction a service connecting Campbells Bay and Sunnynook station via Aberdeen Road – the 907.
  • Introduction of a morning peak service between Hillcrest and the City (Mayoral Drive), taking advantage of the transit lanes on Lake Road and Onewa Road – the 924
  • Retention of a service between Northcote, the western part of Hillcrest and the Glenfield shops – the 926.
