Hobsonville Point is being designed as a ‘walkable’ community. The safe and convenient movement of people on foot or on bikes has been made a priority.

You'll notice that, apart from the main road – Hobsonville Point Road – most of the roads are fairly narrow and designed in a way that reduces vehicle speeds. Walkable connections to local shops, schools and places of work also reduce the need for families to have more than one car. Just over half of the roads are built now. You can see the finished roading system on the masterplan.

To get around the area and further afield the site is served by buses, a commuter ferry to downtown Auckland, and has close access to two motorways.

Buses

A local bus service to Westgate connects to The Landing and the ferry wharf. The 'cross town' service connects to the northern busway on SH1, linking Hobsonville Point to Albany and the CBD. Download the current timetable for buses and ferries from Auckland Transport here.

Ferries

The ferry service connects Hobsonville Point to downtown Auckland several times a day from Monday to Friday. Download the current timetable for buses and ferries from Auckland Transport here. The frequency will increase as the community grows.

Vehicles

Hobsonville Point is accessible from SH 18 via the Squadron Drive off-ramp coming from the north and via the Brigham Creek Road off-ramp coming from the west. It takes approximately 20 minutes to and from the city off-peak.

Cityhop

Two Cityhop carshare cars are now available for use from their designated carparks, one on Hobsonville Point Road, near the corner of Baffin Street (a block over from Brickworks), and the other on Hastings Street by the Catalina Café. For bookings and more, visit cityhop.co.nz.

Carpooling

Carpooling is an easy way to reduce costs, meet new people and do your bit for the environment – all by filling those empty seats for as little as one day of the week. Auckland Transport is supporting carpoolers with priority lanes, priority parks and transit lanes. letscarpool.govt.nz.
