City Rail Link

Auckland post-CRL train travel times

Benefits- Travel Times


The CRL will allow for significantly improved travel times to the city centre and across the entire rail network.

Without the CRL, higher frequency services wouldn't be possible as the number of trains is limited by the dead-end terminus at Britomart.

The CRL also widens passengers' options of where to catch and alight from a train - with the new station mid-town (Aotea) and uptown (Karangahape Road).

Here is an indication of the radical effect on train travel times. The current times below are based on taking a train to Britomart and then walking to mid-town or taking a bus to Karangahape Road. This will change with the opening of the two new stations.
