North Shore Buslane Extended
North Shore Buslane Extended Through St Mary’s Bay
From tomorrow (Thursday 9 January), bus commuters to Auckland from the North Shore will find their journey smoother and faster because of a new bus priority initiative through St Mary’s Bay.
A change to the Transit bylaw will allow city bound buses to use the emergency stopping shoulder as a buslane during the morning peak period Monday to Friday between 6.30am and 9.30am. This will extend the buslane a further 850 metres from the Shelly Beach Road Bridge to Fanshawe Street.
“During heavily congested periods this
could see bus commuters shaving several minutes off their
journey time,” says Transit’s North Shore Busway Project
Director Clive Fuhr.
