Auckland Transport (AT) is investigating a new bus station and park and ride at Rosedale on the North Shore.

The work is in conjunction with the NZ Transport Agency's plans to extend the Northern Busway from Constellation Station to Albany Station.

As a part of this, Auckland Transport will look at local road improvements and additional feeder bus services that could help transport people in and out of the station from the East Coast Bays, North Harbour and Rosedale.

With projections indicating a population growth of 100,000 by 2046, mostly around North Shore metro centres and in northern greenfield areas, AT anticipates that the greatest travel demand will continue to be to the city centre area.

The new Rosedale Station would mean another location to catch the highly successful Northern Express service with park and ride facilities and future links to the North Shore's bus and cycling and walking network.

Peter Clark, Auckland Transport Chief Strategy Officer says the Northern Busway continues to be a highly successful and vital public transport link to and from the city centre and within the North Shore.

"Our goal will be to create an additional destination station for people who work, go to school, do business or attend sporting activities in the area."
