Possible interchange

An early design concept of a new bus interchange in Otahuhu, South Auckland, is now open for public feedback.

The Otahuhu interchange will be a critical hub in the new network with the provision of integrated bus and train services for more than 5,000 passengers a day.

Auckland Transport’s priority is to design an interchange that is simple, accessible and easy to navigate for passengers needing to transfer quickly between different public transport modes.

Passenger and public input is a key aspect of the design process to ensure this major facility reflects the needs of the community it serves and is a catalyst for economic growth.

The new bus and train interchange will be located next to the existing Otahuhu Rail Station with construction expected to get underway in 2014.

It will be a major part of the development of public transport services in the south, and it is currently envisaged that the existing Otahuhu bus station will be replaced with new on-street bus stops on Avenue Road.

There will be regular and frequent bus services connecting the Otahuhu bus-train interchange and new town centre bus stops.

Public feedback on initial proposals will be sought in due course, and two open days will be held for people to ask questions.
