New Network for the North Shore New Network for the North Shore

On 30 September 2018, Auckland Transport (AT) launched a new bus network on the North Shore. There are new bus routes, new route numbers and new timetables.

Download the timetables or use our Journey Planner to explore your new travel options.

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

New Network North Shore Map


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 are fewer routes, but more buses coming more often, particularly 7am to 7pm, 7 days a week. Services are better connected.

You may need to transfer between services to complete some journeys. Fewer areas have direct services to the city centre. Instead there are better connections with the Northern Busway where you can transfer to frequent services to the city centre.
