New Bus Service From Onehunga To Airport


From 9 June 2013 there will be a new 380 Manukau to Onehunga via the Airport bus service.

Serving : Manukau – Papatoetoe – Auckland Airport – Mangere Town Centre – Onehunga

The new service is an extension of the current Manukau to Airport service and provides a new link between the train at Onehunga and the Airport.

In Onehunga buses will start and terminate trips at the bus stop 8589 on Upper Municipal St (the closest stop to Pearce St). The works that are currently taking place will be finished by the time the 380 is launched.This will provide connections between other bus services that use the centre as well as providing Onehunga residents with regular access to the Airport.  You will also be able to catch the 380 bus from the Onehunga Train Station.

The service will also offer better connections to Mangere Bridge and Mangere Town Centre to the Airport for local residents and employees.

Current service between Manukau and the Airport will be largely unaffected as the current 30 minute frequency and hours of operation generally remain the same. The timetable has been slightly adjusted to create operational efficiencies and reflect the new running times for each trip.

While the information on the outside of the buses will be refreshed, the familiar orange colour of the “Airporter” will be retained but will now have the Auckland Transport brand similar to the Northern Express.

Connections with InterCity Coachlines and Nakedbus at the Manukau City Centre stops will be maintained. These connections provide passengers with a reliable service to and from the airport and are promoted by InterCity Coachlines and Nakedbus.

The new service will result in more options for students attending schools close to the route in Mangere and Mangere Bridge. Tertiary students at the AUT Manukau campus and the new MIT campus at Manukau will also benefit from the greater catchment area of the service.
