German Shepard wandering in Manly a few days ago

Deb from Manly

Hi there

Did anyone else see the German Shepard wandering on Monyash Rd, Manly?
I was wondering if he is a local dog who has escaped for a walk or perhaps at a long shot the missing dog seen in notices?

Does your partner work at the border or in an MIQ facility?

Caroline Williams Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours, Are you the partner of a border or MIQ worker but don't live with them? If so, have you been offered the Covid-19 vaccine? If you haven't, does this cause you concern? If this sounds like you, please email me at caroline.williams@stuff.co.nz

Covid-19: North Auckland Sky Bus service yet to resume post-pandemic

Caroline Williams Reporter from Rodney Times

Tēnā koutou. The Sky Bus North Harbour Express, which travels from Albany to the airport, is yet to resume more than a year after the service was suspended due to Covid-19 travel restrictions.

The 55-minute service, which stops outside Albany Westfield and the Smales Farm and Akoranga bus stations along the Northern Busway, cost $25 and $46 for adult one-way and return tickets respectively, with discounted fares for seniors and families.

North Auckland residents have still been able to get to the airport on public transport, via the NX1 to Britomart, train to Papatoetoe Station and the Airport Link bus to the airport.

However, the trip requires two transfers and takes about an hour and 50 minutes from the Hibiscus Coast Bus Station for $8.28 – double the time it would take on the Sky Bus service.

Alternatively, north Aucklanders can take the NX1 into the city – $6.12 from the Hibiscus Coast – and catch the Sky Bus Auckland City Express, taking between an hour and five minutes and an hour and a half.

A Sky Bus spokesman said it is keen to bring the service back, however it would need to see a "significant lift" in patronage for its Auckland City Express. The service resumed in July, however patronage is down 80 per cent compared to pre-Covid.
