Auckland bus gridlock: 37 buses to be pulled from service

Auckland Transport will pull dozens of buses from a new North Shore network after passengers got stuck in a two kilometre jam yesterday.

AT says it is still ironing out problems with the new bus network, which came into effect on Sunday.

A transport hub was jammed with buses during peak-hour traffic yesterday afternoon, and angry passengers got stuck in a two kilometre jam on Constellation Drive in Rosedale.


Auckland Transport spokesperson Mark Hannan said 91 buses arrived within half an hour.

He said 37 buses will be pulled out of service this afternoon in order to free up Constellation Drive.

Mr Hannan said there was a settling-in period with major transport changes such as these.
