Waiuku’s proposed Transport System

There will be two bus services for Waiuku:
1. A limited weekday Waiuku to Papakura service which goes via Kingseat in order to provide the best peak service for onward travel.
2. A Waiuku to Pukekohe service via Patumahoe that will divert via Glenbrook Vintage Railway on Sundays and during public holiday periods in the months that the railway is open. This service will run off-peak and during weekends.
There was support for buses to use the route shown on the map in the consultation brochure (Kitchener Rd, King St, and Constable Rd) but to divert via Queen St and Kitchener Rd through the town centre. The main stopping points that respondents indicated were Kentish Hotel, old New World car park and the netball courts on Kitchener Rd.
Taking into consideration this local feedback the route will enter Waiuku via Kitchener Road and exit via Queen St, Victoria Ave and Colombo Rd.
It is intended that the Pukekohe/Waiuku New Network will be part of the first round of PTOM tendering negotiations and implemented at the same time as other South Auckland contracts in mid-2016 following tender in mid-2015. Timetables will be available prior to implementation to allow people time to plan their travel. A comprehensive public information campaign will be carried out prior to any services changing.
