Commuters travelling from Onehunga or Mangere to Auckland Airport now have a more convenient alternative to taking their cars – the Airporter bus route.
An extension of the current route that runs from Manukau to the airport and back, from June 9 the Airporter buses will continue through Mangere town centre and Mangere Bridge, terminating at the Onehunga transport centre.
Running every 30 minutes at peak times and hourly in off-peak periods from 5am until 8pm every day of the week, the extended bus service provides better connections between the Onehunga train station and the airport, while maintaining the existing ones with InterCity Coachlines and Nakedbus at the Manukau City Centre stops.
The route extension fits under Auckland Transport’s strategy of increasing the number of public transport options through providing greater connectivity between different services and integrated pricing. It will also benefit school and tertiary students in the area.
Look out for the orange buses and head to www.at.co.nz for timetable and fare information.
