Public Transport Travel Routes

Public transport facilities are being expanded. For example, the City Link bus now includes a circuit of Daldy and Beaumont streets every 8 minutes from Monday to Saturday and connects to services across the region. The #10 service provides an hourly weekday service between Onehunga and Wynyard Quarter via Pt Chevalier, with a 30 minute frequency during peak times. Bike racks are provided and pedestrian and cycling facilities are being upgraded and are a major feature of the Halsey and Daldy streets upgrade to encourage these types of travel.

Central Auckland Cycle Map

We have noted the awesome amount of bike enthusiasts around and this is a movement that we want to support as much as we can. With that in mind we have made sure that Lysaght has a large bike storage area, with over 20 racks, sitting alongside really nice shower and bathroom facilities.


Have you thought about purchasing a scooter?  The Council offers free designated parking for motorbikes and scooters in all its car parking buildings. The council also tends to have a relaxed approach to parking motorbikes and scooters in laneways and on footpaths as long as they are out of the movement of pedestrians.
