Auckland Transport Guide

From K'Road to Ponsonby, and from Waiheke Island to Great Barrier Island, Auckland has plenty of transport options to ensure you don't miss a thing while visiting New Zealand's largest city.

How to get around Auckland

For the freedom and flexibility to explore the city and surrounds at your own pace, the best way to get around Auckland is by hiring a car. Equally, tours are a great way to visit the attractions with the experts, encompassing all the city sights and some fun activities along the way. For a cheaper option, the cheap and convenient public LINK bus services run regularly to all of the city's popular destinations like Newmarket, Parnell, Ponsonby and Mission Bay. Trains provide a faster journey to both inner and outer suburbs, although Auckland only has 3 train lines so destinations are limited. The main transport hub for buses and trains is the Britomart Transport Centre in Auckland's CBD. Another option, other than walking, is to hire a bike. Helmets are mandatory by law and Auckland has plenty of dedicated cycle lanes in the city and along the waterfront to enjoy. To get to the islands in Auckland's Hauraki Gulf, hop on a ferry to see Waiheke Island, Great Barrier Island, Rangitoto Island and across to Devonport.
