Travel Alert - Pier 2C Closure

Pier 2C will be closed from Monday 1 May 2017 for approximately 3 weeks to do essential maintenance work to upgrade the gangway, aid mobility access and prepare for new vessels. During this time most services for Waiheke will depart from 2B, and at times from 1C. If services depart from 1C signage will be placed at the ferry terminal entrance to let you know. We recommend you allow extra time for your travel during this time to avoid missing your preferred sailing.


Waiheke Travel Alert - Express Boarding

During summer we partnered with Auckland Transport to conduct a trial of Express Boarding for some of our regular commuters. With the summer timetable concluding, the trial is almost complete and will finish on 30 April 2017.

From 1 May, the new winter timetable commences and with it a new operating sequence that gives us a much larger window to board passengers which negates the need for permanent Express Boarding. If a situation arises where we have a large number of passengers boarding, and a small window to turnaround the vessel, we’ll activate Express Boarding for our monthly pass holders where we can do so with upper gangway loading.

Over the next few months we’ll be working through what the future of our Express Boarding looks like based on some of the feedback we’ve received, and look forward to bringing you a refreshed product for the summer season.
