Auckland Transport: New Public Transport Network

New Public Transport Network

http://www.aucklandtransport.govt.nz/improving-transport/new-network/Pages/default.aspx

Auckland Transport is proposing a simpler, more integrated public transport network which enables improved access to more destinations through better connections and, on key routes, a regular frequent all day service.

Be nice to head over there and check out the new network of trains, especially when the tunnel is finished.

This is embarrassing. Auckland did the bus review, now they will have the NZ version of cross river rail also!

To be fair, this is more like the New Zealand version of the Brisbane City Tunnels, or the Flinders Street Viaduct in that it is designed to turn the main city station from a terminal station into a through station, and provide a railway corridor through a CBD where none has existed until now.

But your point about being prepared to actually invest in the network is still well made

NZ Herald --> Trams proposed for airport route

Quote
Auckland Transport is considering running trams to the airport via Dominion Rd, one of the Super City's busiest commuter routes.

Its consultants have nominated 20 potential tram stops between the airport and Britomart - including eight along Dominion Rd and four on Queen St - but questions are being raised about how the route could serve both long-distance travellers and commuters ...

They have light rail in Vancouver Seattle and Portland to the Airport, works to a T and have used it myself. May work in Auckland as well?

I think they should just extend the train from Onehunga.

On my trip to Auckland I used the bus to get to/from the airport. The biggest issue is that ANY transit (car/bus) either has to use an indirect route (M20 to the M20/M1 interchange, then M1 into the city) or run along 2-lane suburban surface roads - not even KSD-like, more like travelling down Rode Rd or Kenmore Rd.

I think the better solution would be extend the Onehunga line. If so desired, the airport train could then run express past some stations to the airport. As it stands, the LRT route would probably be slow and frustrating, with the airport just being a bonus anchor on the end of the trip. Perhaps just built LRT down Dominion Rd to the M20, and then extend it if demand is warranted after the Onehunga like has gone to the airport.

I really doubt the heavy rail extension will cost $1.2bn more than LRT anyway. That seems crazy.
Is it really that hard to run frequent, reliable public transport?

They must be assuming that a new bridge is needed. In Perth, they just put the train over the existing bridges.

The solution would be similar for train or tram, this shouldn't cause any difference in cost really.

On an unrelated note: Auckland must be genuinely interested in having a better PT network, they even encourage commuters to join the local PTUA by means of on-board advertisements!

The fly through looks great and its coming into fruition, unlike our fly throughs and animations. I like the bus tunnel component as well as new street scaping and traffic calming. A real modern international blend of ideas.

Graph confuses Level of Priority with mode.
Ferry, light rail in exclusive or Priority B and Bus in Priority B or A would be similar.

NZ Herald --> Cheaper commutes in Auckland as new fares rolled out

Quote
Some Aucklanders will have noticed their commutes were a little cheaper yesterday as officials rolled out the city's new fare system.

Public transport fares will now be calculated by the number of the city's 13 zones someone travels through, rather than how many trips they take.

This means about 33 per cent of public transport users have had a fare decrease and for 66 per cent there will be no change.

For example, those travelling from the Constellation bus station into the city have had the cost of their trips drop from $4.90 to $3.10 because they're now only travelling through two zones.

Cash fares have also been rounded to the nearest dollar.

Auckland Transport said the new system, dubbed "simpler fares", would help make it easier for people using multiple forms of transport to get around. ...
