    From airport to town

    by MJL Written Mar 12, 2013

    If you stay somewhere near Queen st. airbus stops, you can use that bus to and from airport. I bought return ticket from ticket booth, but the booth may be closed. In this situation you can buy ticket from the driver.

    Airbus Express

    A good way to get from Auckland Airport to the city centre is to catch the Airbus. It operates 24/7 and runs every 10mins during the day and every 30mins during the night. I must admit I did find the trip a bit long - it takes about 40mins to get to the city centre. If you are returning the the airport after your trip to Auckland make sure you buy a return ticket not a one way as it will work out more expensive. see cost below:

    Adult: One way: $16
    Return: $26

    Child: One way: $6
    Return: $12

    Tickets are bought onboard and no reservations are needed.

    Airport shuttle

    An excellent bus service connects Auckland airport to the city centre for 15NZ$ one way or 22ND$ return ticket.
    The shuttle leaves the airport (and the city centre on the way back) every 15 minutes 24/7 and it is air-conditioned.
    Absolutely recommended!
