Changes to Auckland Public Transport Network: Have Your Say South Auckland

Over the next few years Auckland Transport is moving to a simpler, more integrated new public transport network for Auckland.

The New Network will change the way people travel. It is a region wide public transport network which is proposed to deliver bus services at least every 15 minutes throughout the day, seven days a week on major routes between the hours of 7am to 7pm.

It will allow more passengers to simply ‘turn up and go’ rather than planning trips around a timetable, offering Aucklanders more flexible travel options over large parts of the city all day, every day.

Due to the scale of change, consultation and implementation for the New Network has been broken into several phases. The process is starting with South Auckland’s network and will soon begin consultation.

To help you understand what the New Network will mean for you, we’ve released a video guide. You can view it here: http://www.aucklandtransport.govt.nz/newnetwork

Pharmac recently announced that they are changing the brand for subsidised Blood Glucose Meters. Those who monitor their blood glucose will need to change meter brands if they wish to continue to receive fully subsidised meters.

Time to Register for The Sunrise Walk for Hospice 14 April 2013

The fourth annual Sunrise Walk 2013 is now open for registrations.

  • 14 April 2013
  • 7.45 am
  • Auckland Botanical Gardens

The Sunrise Walk is open for the whole family to take part – even the family dog is welcome.  Everyone can now join in for this annual 5km walk around the Botanic Gardens in memory of a loved one or to simply be a part of something inspirational and fun that’s all for a great cause.

The Sunrise Walk for Hospice is a community driven fundraiser for Totara Hospice South Auckland.  With a large emphasis on bringing the community together, hundreds of invigorated people descend on the Auckland Botanical Gardens to celebrate the amazing service Totara Hospice delivers.

Revised start time of 7.45am is easier on the family, and the start line has been relocated to the top of the gardens outside Cafe Miko with lots of shade from the expected sunshine after the walk. There are some great new things happening on the day too so if you’ve been before , expect even more fun this year!  There will be a free sausage sizzle, bright and funky event bandanas plus gala-style fun after the event.

Help raise $100,000 and make this year’s Sunrise Walk the most successful and fun Walk yet!
