2018-2028 Regional Public Transport Plan Out for Consultation. Includes Stage 1 Airport to Botany Rapid Transit

Have your say

From today until mid-December you can have your say on how Auckland’s public transport will be shaped through the next ten years (although the Regional Public Transport Plan or RPTP is updated every three years). 

Quite a few changes as Light Rail, and Airport to Botany Rapid Transit are constructed and will subsequently alter existing services.

From Auckland Transport:

Regional Public Transport Plan (RPTP)

The Regional Public Transport Plan (RPTP) describes the public transport network that Auckland Transport (AT) proposes for the region, identifies the services that are integral to that network over a 10-year period, and sets out the policies and procedures that apply to those services.

About the RPTP

Transport is a key component of a city’s success. As you can see in the video, Auckland is growing and as more people live here, the number of trips taken on our transport networks is increasing.

The space available for transport networks is finite. This means that we need as many people as possible to travel using efficient forms of transport; such as walking, cycling and public transport. These alternative transport options take less space and are more environmentally sustainable than private motor vehicles.

A well-used public transport system is fundamental to making Auckland livable. We need a plan to identify public transport needs and opportunities, and to set out the solutions.

With Light Rail and Airport to Botany on their way there will be changes to core parts of the transit network like the existing 380 Airporter (that runs from Onehunga to Manukau via the Airport and Papatoetoe. 

An example being once Airport to Botany – Airport to Manukau stage is operating 2021 the 380 gets split into the: 38, 36 and 380 as seen below:

  1. Great to see we are paying $3.5B on the city rail link to run ten minute peak frequencies in 2028. AT wonder why they have a reputational issue and then produce rubbish like that.
