With bus drivers set to strike tomorrow and throwing travel for thousands into potential chaos it’s worth remembering that not all buses are affected. After my post was published yesterday AT published a list of all routes affected. You can see them here:
Howick & Eastern where some but not all services are affected.
Reader Stephen Davis has helpfully put together these maps showing the routes that will have services (green), the ones that don’t (red) and the ones with partial service (orange).
As you can see, a lot of Auckland is going to be affected. The areas that aren’t are mainly the North Shore (except for the East Coast bays), the Northwest, and the areas around Titirangi/Green Bay, with a few other pockets around.
And some more detailed versions:
Looking at these maps, one of the things that sticks out is just how much we need the New Network rolled out to simplify the route structure. There are quite a few places that look like they have service but actually don’t due to all of the overlapping patterns. Something that would be nearly impossible to display well on any sort of legible map.
Great work Stephen.
