Racks return to Auckland Island thanks to local action group


Commuters and tourists on the beautiful New Zealand Island of Waiheke have Cycle Action Auckland (CAA) to thank for the long-awaited return of external bicycle racks to Waiheke Bus Company vehicles.

The racks were successfully introduced 5 years ago, but withdrawn due to legal issues at the time. CAA have been campaigning for the re-instatement of bike racks fitted to buses to improve the options for cyclists who choose to ride to and from the ferry terminal or want to explore the island’s many cycle tracks. The racks are a welcome return for commuters and tourists alike, and just in time for the summer season.
