Passenger Capacity restrictions ease on public transport

In line with Government guidance of physical distancing restrictions easing on public transport in Auckland from Monday 14th September, our ferry services have resumed operating to standard operating capacity.

While we are back to normal capacity, wearing a face mask or covering is still mandatory on public transport and we urge our customers to keep your face covered when boarding the ferry and for the duration of your journey. Our crew are reminding customers of the use of face coverings and where appropriate, crew will seek the support of on-wharf security or the police who are responsible for enforcing the alert level 2 guidelines.

As we welcome more passengers, we have a few tips for a smooth sailing experience:

  • Try to travel off-peak and avoid crowded peak hour sailings wherever possible
  • Physically distance yourselves in queues while boarding, and where possible take responsibility for your own physical distancing on board
  • Continue to keep up high levels of personal hygiene – make use of the sanitising stations on wharves before boarding, alternatively wash your hands with soaps available in the bathrooms onboard our vessels
  • Arrive at least 15 minutes early for your service if you are unable to be flexible with your travel.

Please continue to scan the QR codes onboard vessels and on the wharfs via the NZ COVID Tracer App to help with contact tracing.
