Britomart Transport Centre is the underground terminus for Auckland’s suburban rail network. The station has railway services on all suburban lines including trains to Onehunga, Manukau, Papakura and Swanson. Although most visitors to Auckland don’t use the rail network as it doesn’t go to the main tourist sites, some people find it handy to travel to the shopping areas at Newmarket and Sylvia Park as well as Onehunga or Papatoetoe where you can get connecting bus services to the airport (a cheaper alternative to the express airport bus).

Auckland rail network

The station is located at the downtown end of Queen Street, near the ferry terminal.

Britomart only handles suburban rail services. The long-distance Northern Explorer train to Wellington departs from Auckland Strand Station.

    AT HOP cards are an advantage.

    For a city the size of Auckland the 'central' station is surprisingly small. Though, the trains run on time and an AT Hop card will save you tons!

    Love the vibe here! Beautifully designed and engineered. I wish they operate 24 hours.

    Luggage storage halfway towards the trains. A few food options too.

    After repeated uses, I can safely say the public toilets here are the only ones in Auckland free of mutants and evil spirits.

    The place to be if you are homeless. Nice building. PA system feedback likely to give you a headache.

    They put blue lights in the toilet stalls to stop people shooting up

    The toilets have excellent hand dryers, and its a great landmark to meet friends who are travelling. Easy to navigate around. Clear instructions.

    If you need a coffee, avoid the platform stand and grab one from the kiosk outside mcds

    The bus stop for Airbus to the Airport has now moved back to its original stop at no. 7300 by the Ferry Terminal.

    Try the Dyson hand dryers in the toilets. They are amazing :-)

    The free City Link bus leaves from just outside to go up Queen St to K Road and just opposite to Wynyard Quarter.

    Load your HOP card with trips and not value will save you paying the 25c service charge

    You can load your hop card using your credit card here rather than EFTPOS

    The escalators and stairs at the far end of the platforms now come up inside the new Westpac/Ernst & Young building. A good exit for avoiding the crowds at the main escalators.

    When a child on the train asks "what's that screeching noise?" try answering "that's a dementor coming to suck out your soul" and just watch

    A beautiful building with a long a varied history, Britomart is now the hub of transport for Auckland. Also, it's very pretty when lit up at night!

    Check out the hanging plants in the eastern-end hub!

    To get to platform 9-3/4, run headlong into the barrier between platforms 9 & 10.

    Don't make eye contact with edgy folk who look like they are on P!

    The coffee on the lower Concours is much like the girl who makes it. Luke warm, and slightly bitter.
