Auckland Transport’s data shows that last week was the busiest on public transport this year, reports Greater Auckland, with the weekday average passing 240k trips per day for the first time since Delta struck in mid-August 2021. Last week also saw the first day with more than 250k trips. That’s good news and, with the last few weeks sitting at around 65-70% of pre-COVID levels, it suggests public transport use is finally starting to recover again after being stuck in the 55-60% range during autumn and winter.
