Cruise into 2021 with more frequency and flexibility on the Devonport – CBD ferry service, with more services available on the route, with an extended peak service window, and the introduction of a frequent 20-minute timetable during peak times.
From Monday, 25 January 2021, North Shore commuters who travel on the Devonport to Auckland CBD ferry commuters will experience the new and improved 20-minute extended peak commuter schedule, enjoying additional services provided to support commuters in 2021.
The new timetable will have sailings running every 20 minutes from 7am – 10am and 4pm – 8pm on weekdays. This will give our customers greater certainty and efficiency for both the ferry and connecting transport services. The new 20-minute frequency replaces the temporary mixed 15-minute and 30-minute service launched in July last year.
The new timetable factors in changing commuter travel patterns and trends due to COVID-19, the evolving water space and increased congestion, and ongoing construction in the Downtown Auckland ferry basin.
The new 20-minute ferry timetable aligns with Auckland Transport’s revised Devonport Bus Timetable, meaning North Shore communities who rely on the service will benefit from the best possible customer experience from a network perspective.
Delivering exemplary reliability and punctuality levels is a critical measure for our team, and the 20-minute timetable with allows us to do this within a dynamic operating environment. Despite COVID-19, we are striving to deliver on our vision for the Hauraki Gulf - to scale up our services for treasured destinations such as Devonport, for Aucklanders and visitors alike
We look forward to welcoming more commuters back for 2021 and hope the additional frequency will encourage more locals to include a ferry service in their travel to and from the CBD.
