Auckland Bus and Coach

Auckland Bus and Coaches are efficient and frequent. If limited. Invest in a HOP card to get the best value for money while getting about in Auckland.

Auckland Bus and Coaches are a great way of exploring the city. Buses run around the city regularly, but there isn't one single company, just lots of private ones. Preloading a HOP swipe card, or investing in an Auckland Discovery Card eliminates the hassle of needing different tickets for different buses. HOP cardholders can travel on CityLink buses for free.


The Intercity coach network travels to 700 destinations throughout New Zealand. A range of fixed and non-fixed itinerary travel passes are also available so you have maximum flexibility.

Airbus Express

Airbus Express operates 24/7, 365 days of the year. It's the cheapest transfer from the airport into Auckland city and runs every 10 minutes during the week and every 15 minutes at the weekend.

Explorer Tours

Explorer Tours has a fleet of buses to hire from luxury 11 & 18 seats up to full tour coaches for large groups. There are also 'party bus', self drive hire options and guided tour services available.
