Public transport network planning in Auckland, New Zealand

This paper explores the potential improvements to public transport patronage in Auckland, New Zealand that could be delivered by using the 'network planning' approach to public transport service design. Analysis of Auckland public transport services shows that a tailor-made approach has been adopted which is responsible for the low patronage levels. However, the city has an appropriate institutional structure and legislative framework which could support the redesign of public transport services to be simple, direct, higher frequency and make use of an integrated fare structure. Auckland land-use planning strategies provide a supportive context for network planning approach and should be used to develop a public engagement process for redesigning the public transport network. The paper concludes that Auckland has considerable potential to achieve higher public transport patronage by redesigning the network.
