It opened in February 2008 and has been very successful, with ridership increasing more rapidly than was originally forecast during the project's investigation.
Around a third of the trips over the Auckland Harbour Bridge in the morning peak travel period are now taken by bus.
This is expected to at least double over the next 30 years. By the mid-2030s it is forecast that more morning peak trips across the bridge will be by bus than by car (Auckland Transport, 2016).
The success of the busway has delayed the need for further harbour crossings, saving billions of dollars. It is so popular and effective that many services are becoming overcrowded.
