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.
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.
