A high-frequency bus service that has been compared to the London Underground has been proposed for Auckland.
Auckland Transport has opened submissions for its plan to run buses every 15 minutes along main routes from 7am to 7pm seven days a week as well as access to more destinations.
The system would be similar to the London Underground where people can turn up without a timetable because of the high frequency of services, Auckland Transport's manager of public transport operations Mark Lambert said.
"The principle which is already working in most North American and European cities is to create a network of high frequency lines that are designed to work together through easy connections," he said.
Another planned improvement is the move to a zone-based fare system which would allow unlimited travel within a certain area and timeframe.

The new fare system would allow passengers to transfer between buses and trains with only one ticket.
"To make some trips, some passengers will need to transfer at key interchanges," said Lambert.
"In return passengers will get improved frequencies, integrated ticketing enabled by one smart travel card to transfer between services without penalty, reduced waiting times and better connections to the places they want to go."
The public has until 4pm Monday 5 November 2012 to have their say.
