Red bus Queen street

The red bus is a great deal, specially if like me, you have the hotel up at the end of Queen street. In fact going down walking is nice, but on the way back, catching the red bus for one dollar, may seem a lot better. It runs around Queen street on both ways every ten minutes and you pay inside the bus.

The Link bus, environmentally friendly

The LINK is a very cheap environmentally friendly bus (satisfying the Euro5 standards) that will lead you from the city centre to all the main touristic actractions in Auckland for 1.60NZ$!
I definitely do not suggest driving in Auckland, above all because parking could be very expensive, and the LINK is simply the best way to move around!

The Link is the most convenient way to go around Auckland City. It runs every 10 minutes from 6am to 7pm Monday to Friday. In the evenings the frequency is every 15 minutes and also on Saturdays but from 7am to 6 pm. Difficult to miss. Most of all interesting sites can be reached by this service.
The City Loop costs NZ$ 1.50
A Day Pass costs NZ$ 7.00
The Auckland pass costs NZ$ 10.00 including the downtown Fullers ferries.
