We need to give people a safe place to get on and off the bus near the Bayfair Shopping Centre.
The bus stop at the front entrance of the Bayfair Shopping Centre was closed on 20 June 2018 for Bayfair’s expansion upgrade. We’ve built a temporary bus stop on Farm Street to give people a safe place to get on and off the bus.
The plan for the Farm Street bus stop was audited by traffic safety experts. All of their recommendations were either followed or addressed to make sure the temporary bus stop will be as safe as possible for everyone who moves through that area.
How long will the temporary bus stop be in place?
The council is still investigating options and designs for a permanent bus interchange for the Arataki area. Until then, the temporary bus stop will remain in place.
Why can’t the bus stop go back to the front of Bayfair once their upgrade is finished?
The front entrance of Bayfair Shopping Centre is an unsuitable long-term location for the type of bus interchange that‘s going to be needed to support the expanding bus service.
