AUT shuttle buses

AUT has shuttle buses which run between the City and South Campuses. Shuttle buses have free wifi, ramps for wheelchair users, and provide schedule updates to passengers.

Shuttle bus changes in 2021

The shuttle bus to the North Campus was discontinued at the end of 2020. Instead, you can take the NX2 bus (run by Auckland Transport) which runs every 10 minutes during the day. You'll need an AT Hop card. For a refund for your North Campus shuttle paper ticket email

Check the AT website for details.

How to catch the NX2 bus

From April 2021, paper tickets will no longer be available for AUT’s shuttle buses. Students and staff can top up their AUT app or their ID Card with funds that can be used to pay for shuttle rides when entering a shuttle bus. Students will be able to transfer remaining paper ticket concessions to the AUT Wallet. We will update students on how to transfer their ticket funds by Tuesday 23 March.
