Survey for Warkworth results in continued Kowhai Connection

Survey for Warkworth results in continued Kowhai Connection service

During July and August 2014 a survey was conducted to investigate the public transport requirements for the residents of Warkworth. 396 submissions were received.

“The survey was undertaken as part of a network review that’s happening for all of Auckland,” says Anthony Cross, Public Transport Network Manager.

Information was gathered on what journeys locals would use a public transport service for, and how often they would use it.

“We’ve analysed the feedback received, and the result is that Warkworth will continue to be served by the Kowhai Connection service, which provides transport around the local area.

“At present we did not find that there is a strong demand from the community for a public transport service to the Hibiscus Coast, however we recognise that Warkworth is a rapidly developing area therefore we will re-look at Warkworth’s public transport needs in 2016-17,” says Mr Cross.

“In October we’ll be extending the popular Northern Express service from Auckland City up to Silverdale, which in the next few years will be supported by a new Park and Ride facility. This could provide a future option for Warkworth residents needing to commute to Auckland City.”
