Public transport – train, bus and ferry

Our public transport network is a great way to get around. As well as inner city buses, you can travel by train, ferry or bus throughout the wider region.

The main transport hub is located downtown, with the ferry terminal, Britomart train station and Link bus departure points all in this area. (Due to construction in the downtown area, some bus departure points have moved further up town). A number of bus and train stations and some ferry departure points also have park and ride facilities.
