Quick is getting quicker

SkyBus is committed to providing passengers with world-class transport between Downtown Auckland and Auckland Airport that is quick, frequent and affordable.


We know that our customers value quick and reliable transfers and as such we are making changes to deliver just that.

Starting Sunday 25 April, Mt Eden Road will be removed from the Auckland City Express route with the service now travelling via the North Western Motorway and the Waterview tunnel. This will provide shorter travel times by entering and exiting the CBD via the quickest and most reliable route.

Our downtown stops have been simplified to three convenient locations.

Commencing Sunday 25 April.

New Auckland City stops

From Sunday 25 April, Auckland City Express will have three new stops in downtown Auckland conveniently located near major transport hubs and attractions. Our Auckland Airport stops are unchanged – SkyBus picks up and drops off kerbside at the Domestic and International terminals in Auckland Airport.
