Auckland Dockline Tram

Take a ride through the Wynyard Quarter on the Auckland Dockline Tram. Proudly operated by MOTAT in partnership with Panuku Development Auckland.

The Auckland Dockline Trams

The Auckland Dockline Tramway is a 1.5 km circular tour around Wynyard Quarter with a short commentary provided by the Tram Driver along the way.

For a small fee you can purchase an all-day ticket from the tram driver to travel the full loop or hop-on or off at any of the four tram stops.

The tram service runs 10am – 4pm on Sundays, and all long weekends and public holidays.*

* If you want to experience something extra special, Croque Madame band will perform live on a tram from 1 - 3 pm, only on Sunday 23 October! *

Please note: Sunday 30 October, Dockline Tram will not be operating due to the Auckland Marathon event.

The Auckland Dockline Tram is a partnership between the Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT) and Panuku Development Auckland, Auckland Council’s urban regeneration agency.

Dockline Tram Accessibility

Both Dockline trams have wide doors and can accommodate a wheelchair. But boarding does need assistance.

  • To board the tram along the route at one of the tram stops, wheelchairs need to be lifted onto the tram so an accompanying caregiver who can do this must be with you.

  • If you are on your own, or do not wish to be lifted onboard, you can board at our tram shed which has a ramp. This must be by prior arrangement, as our Tram Driver needs to take a detour off route to collect and drop you. Phone 027 252 5706 or email james.duncan@motat.org.nz ahead of the day you wish to take a ride. We welcome your enquiry. 


*Do keep a check on this website though for any required closures. To ensure the overall safety of the public, trams may not operate if there is heavy foot traffic in the area.
