Auckland Transport has developed a two sided pocket guide to show the existing carpool infrastructure in Auckland. One side of the guide displays all of the existing priority lanes, priority parks and transit lanes for the region and the reverse side is a more detailed map of the North Shore transit lanes.
The guide coincides with a review of transit and bus lanes which is currently being undertaken by Auckland Transport’s Road Corridor Operation Team. Traffic Operations Leader South, Tim Segedin says “Auckland Transport is working towards achieving a consistent approach to implementing Bus and Transit lanes across the region. As part of this work AT have produced an assessment methodology for Bus and Transit lanes and has also identified a series of marking and signage improvements.”
T2 and T3 lanes are for vehicles with 2 or more people (T2) or 3 or more people (T3). The ‘T’ stands for ‘transit’ and these lanes typically operate during the morning and evening peak periods, allowing high occupancy vehicles to use designated lanes, therefore reducing delays and congestion on key routes. Priority lanes are on-ramp lanes heading towards the motorway, where vehicles with 2 or more people can bypass the ramp signal.
Community Transport Manager, Matthew Rednall says “Auckland Transport is committed to promoting carpooling as a mode of transport and this guide helps commuters make better informed transport decisions, whilst also supporting Auckland Transport’s carpool match scheme www.Rideshare.co.nz.”
