CityLink Bus Around Auckland

The easiest way to get around Auckland's City Centre

    The CityLink is the easiest way to get around Auckland's city centre. It runs from Wynyard Quarter, along Queen St, up to K-Rd and then back down Queen Street. All the CityLink buses are bright red and are easy to spot. There's no need for a timetable either as the services run on such a regular basis.

    Here are the key spots that will be right on your route or a one minute walk from where you hop off.
