Park and Ride services

If you are travelling from suburbs beyond the inner city, you can use a Park and Ride service. This allows you to drive to the bus or train station, leave your car, and enjoy a hassle-free ride into the central city.

Park and Ride facilities

On-street parking

This usually operates on a Pay and Display basis. When you park, you must buy a ticket from a roadside machine and display it on the dashboard of your car.

Parking times are strictly enforced by parking wardens, so check the maximum allowed time and move your car before your ticket expires.

Disability parking

There are a small number of spaces on campus for people with CCS mobility cards and people recovering from surgery or injury.

Disability car parking at the City and Grafton campuses

  • You need a current CCS Mobility Parking Card or supporting medical evidence to use the disability parking spaces.
  • There are charges.

How to access the disability parking spaces:

  1. Take your CCS card or supporting medical evidence to:
    Disability Services
    Room 036 (basement)
    The ClockTower
    22 Princes Street
    Phone: 373 7599 ext 82936, or direct dial 923 2936
  2. Complete an ‘Application for Parking’ form.
  3. Confirm the parking areas required.
  4. Pay the appropriate parking fee. Fees vary.

The Disability Services Office will give you a temporary parking permit, for the specified period of time, after you have paid the fee. The parking permit allows you to use disability parking spaces in your nominated parking areas on a first-come-first-served basis. Please note that the parking permit does not give you a reserved parking space.
If you need access to a parking area that is controlled by a barrier arm, the Disability Services Office will give you a swipe card (if you don’t already have one) and authorise Security to load your card with access to the relevant parking areas.
You must return the swipe card when you no longer need it. If required, you must re-apply for a permit.

Carpooling is a great choice if you can't commute by walking, cycling or using public transport.

Find and share rides using the Auckland Transport (AT) Smart Travel app, or find out more about workplace carpooling on the AT website.

EV Vehicle charging stations

For Health and Safety reasons it is not permitted to connect electric vehicles (EV) to the University power network.

Property Services is aware of the increasing demand for EV charging points in the University car parks. There are a number of challenges from an operational and infrastructure perspective to providing chargers in the car parks.

The Operations team at Property Services, in liaison with the Energy and Sustainability managers, assess opportunities on a regular basis. As technologies change and opportunities present themselves, we may be able to support a charging point project.

Check online maps for locations of EV charging stations close to the University.
