Below are projected routes and schedules for trains, buses, and the Devonport Ferry with the introduction of SUPERMAXX. Six months is a reasonable time frame to implement these across the city, one month to refine the routes, three months in the public domain for comment by Local Boards and residents of each area, and two months to change drivers rosters and promote the new schedules to the public.

This could have been implemented in 2008 with huge benefits to Aucklanders with much better services and much lower costs to commuters and ratepayers.

It is outrageous that 1,000 people in Auckland Transport receiving over $70 million in wages are incapable of completing their simplified network before 2016. There is no excuse for this.
