Auckland Dockline Tram

Wynyard Quarter

The iconic Auckland Dockline Tram is back on track performing its well versed 1.5km loop of Wynyard Quarter. 

The tram takes passengers along Jellicoe, Halsey, Gaunt and Daldy streets whilst providing live commentary on the sights, attractions and history of the area.

The tram route was suspended in August 2018 ahead of the 36th America’s Cup, since then, the area has transformed and there are so many new sights to see, experience and learn about.

For a small fee you can purchase an all-day ticket from the tram driver to travel the full loop or hop-on or off at any of the four tram stops.

Ticket prices:

  • Adults: $2
  • Children: $1
  • SuperGold Card holders and under fives: Free

Cash or card payments only.

Operating days: 

  • Sundays
  • Public Holidays
  • Saturdays over long weekends

As the tram is considered a tourist attraction and not public transport, payment for the tram must be made by card or cash (AT HOP cards will not be accepted). This also means that face masks will not be mandatory under New Zealand law, however passengers are encouraged to scan in using the NZ COVID Tracer app and are welcome to wear a face mask if they choose.


The announcement of the tram's return comes thanks to a new partnership between the Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT) and Panuku Development Auckland, Auckland Council’s urban regeneration agency.

Bring a bike for free on most ferries and trains and enjoy a waterfront experience. 

Come into the city centre on public transport for as little as $2 each way. Find out more
