Why a City Centre to Māngere line?

The City Centre to Māngere line will connect two major employment hubs (Auckland City Centre and the Airport). It will connect with planned housing and deliver better access for communities including suburbs with limited public transport.

The line is the backbone of the light rail network and will eventually connect with other light rail lines to the North and Northwest. This will benefit the whole city and allow far more people to move around the city freely.

Please note: as part of the business case we have investigated all potential routes and alternatives to ensure the best outcome for Auckland.
