Are there really people living in Hamilton working in Central Auckland waiting to use the train to get to work?

I travelled to Auckland last Friday leaving Hamilton at 6.30am  and was in my client’s office near Victoria Park overlooking Auckland harbour by 9am. It cost me $16. How?

The Skip bus service. It has to go on to Whangarei to get enough passengers to use it. 16 passengers left Hamilton, two alighted at Manukau and at least six were destined to Whangarei. No one looked like they were working in Auckland. From the hype, I had expected hordes of people and a crowded bus.

It was quick, comfortable and efficient.
