Changes coming for downtown bus services

Some bus services in downtown Auckland have changed.

Construction work is about to start on the City Rail Link (CRL) and this affects bus services on Albert St and lower Queen St in particular.

Some bus stops to be moved

AT Metro Bus Services Manager, Brendon Main, says Auckland Transport is moving bus stops now to minimise disruption to passengers.

“Some parts of the downtown area are being closed off, so we are have to move some buses. On our website we have set up an interactive map which will help people find if their service is affected and where it departs from.”

Biggest construction project city has seen

Auckland Transport also has signs at bus stops in the area and will have ambassadors at stops to help customers.

Mr Main says Auckland Transport wants to make it as easy as possible for passengers but this is a big change and will need some patience.

“The CRL is the biggest construction programme ever in the central city, so there will be some disruption during the construction phase. At the same time there is a lot of building work going on in Albert, St so the buses will have to work around this.

“All we can ask is that people follow the signage and talk to ambassadors so that we can make this as easy as possible for our customers.”
