Transportation from AKL
After you fly to Auckland Airport, you can get one of the express bus services into the downtown area, or take a thirty minute cab ride in one of the cabs waiting at the taxi stand outside. For visitors who want to spend some time exploring the city independently, Auckland has public transportation options, including buses, trains and ferries. Traffic in Auckland can be particularly bad, especially at peak times, which might make public transportation a better option than driving if you have to be somewhere at a particular time. However, if you are planning a night time outing, you may have to get a taxi as public transportation stops at midnight, even on the weekends. Getting cheap Auckland flights is a great way to save money in case you do find yourself needing cab fare to get around the city.
