Auckland’s newest transport centre at Ōtāhuhu Station will open on 29 October, heralding the roll-out of a simpler public transport network for south Auckland.

The new bus station is a milestone for Auckland Transport. The $28 million project is being funded by Auckland Council and the New Zealand Transport Agency.

More buses, more often

The station is at the heart of the Southern New Network, says Auckland Transport’s Chief AT Metro Officer, Mark Lambert.

“South Aucklanders can look forward to seeing more buses on the roads and at better frequencies than before.”

The first bus to arrive at this station is the frequent Great South Road bus from Papakura at 6.38am. It is one of three bus routes that will operate at least every 15 minutes, between 7am and 7pm, seven days a week.

Improving the network

Improved bus frequencies, more direct routes, Simpler Fares and new bus stations like Ōtāhuhu will make it easier for people to get around Auckland.

Design reflects area's history

The design of the new station reflects the history of the area and the site’s importance to local mana whenua as a historic portage site for waka. Māori art and design is displayed throughout the station site, and three key artworks are integrated with the building.
