Buses around Auckland City

The Inner LINK, City LINK and Outer LINK are three of Auckland's bus routes that have wheelchair accessible buses.

They are great for getting around the CBD and for seeing some Auckland atttactions such as The Auckland War Memorial Museum and the Newmarket and Ponsonby shopping areas.

Most LINK bus stops and buses have audible and electronic real-time passenger information. Simply push the yellow button at the bus stop signs.

Auckland Transport has recently revamped bus routes around central Auckland with the aim of making buses more direct, reliable and best of all, accessible for wheelchair and pushchair users.
