Buses will replace all trains this weekend

Buses will replace all trains this weekend

Buses will replace all trains this weekend to allow KiwiRail to carry out works associated with electric trains and upgrading Auckland’s rail network.

Replacement rail bus services will be provided during the closure and special timetables will be in place for them. Buses will be marked ‘rail bus’.

To board a rail bus you need to be waiting at the temporary bus location and not a regular bus stop. Signage directing you to the correct location is posted at the station’s entrance and on the platform. Timetable information is also posted at the bus stop.

In central Auckland, Britomart Transport Centre will not be open for rail passengers.

All rail buses will arrive and depart from Commerce Street. Rail buses heading west will depart from bus stop 7024 and rail buses for all other lines will depart from bus stop 7026 on Commerce Street.

Rail buses travel between train stations using local roads and streets. We recommend passengers check if rail replacement services are suitable to their travel plans as a regular scheduled bus may be a better option.

All valid tickets and passes currently accepted on trains can be used on rail bus replacements.

To help plan your journey and for rail bus stop locations go online at www.at.govt.nz or phone 09 366 6400 to speak to one of our AT Contact Centre team.

The majority of rail buses are unfortunately not accessible to wheelchair users and pushchairs. Mobility scooters, bikes and large items of luggage are also not able to be carried.

Saturday 22 and Sunday 23 February – buses replace all trains

Gordon Campbell: On Bill English, Abroad

If David Cameron was the closest thing John Key had to a political mentor, their successors also share a whole lot in common.

Gordon Campbell: On Populism And Labour 2017

For many people on the centre-left, populism is a dirty word, and a shorthand for the politics of bigotry. In this country, it has tended to be equated with the angry legions of New Zealand First. Who knew they were not just a reactionary spasm, but the wave of the future? More>>
