As a result of the Downtown Ferry Terminal project coming to completion this July, a number of pier and timetable changes are coming into effect from Monday, 5 July.

This is the biggest upgrade to Auckland’s ferry infrastructure and passenger services in more than a century to meet Auckland’s transport needs now and into the future.

Included in the completed works are six new piers (piers 4-9) on Queens Wharf which has prompted a new numbering system from Auckland Transport.
