Auckland Transport has announced it will start a bus service from Warkworth to the Silverdale park and ride in 2018.
Network Manager AT Metro Development Anthony Cross says with increasing development around Warkworth it’s time for permanent public transport in the area.
“The service will initially consist of several trips each day between Hibiscus Coast Station and Warkworth with connections to towns currently served by the Kowhai Connection service such as Matakana and Snells Beach.”
Mr Homan says a draft timetable will be released for public feedback early next year. “We want local people to have a say on what suits them as far as links to the city and to the shopping areas on the Hibiscus Coast and North Shore.”
A Warkworth bus service will be included in AT’s North Shore and Hibiscus Coast tender round later this year.
The new services will start in the first half of 2018.
