Catching SkyBus

SkyBus stops at both the Auckland Domestic and Auckland International Terminals. Services to International Airport operate 24 hours a day. Services to Domestic operate until the final flight lands. For a drop off at Domestic Terminal after 10pm please advise your driver.

Services alternate between two routes – Mt Eden Road #01 or Dominion Road #05. Both routes converge onto Queen St and terminate at the SkyBus City Lounge (396 Queen St). For a pick up please stand at your nearest bus stop and hail the driver on approach. For drop offs press the ‘stop’ button when approaching your preferred stop to alert the driver.

Transfers take approximately 40-50 minutes from the Airport to the CBD. Times may vary according to traffic conditions and unplanned events. Please allow at least 1 hour travel time to meet your check-in requirements.
