Driving into Auckland CBD is hell, pure hell, even over the weekend. If you need to commute over the harbour bridge just abandon all hope now, better to simply quit your job sure you will be homeless but at least you will be happier. Public transport is like being tortured by Beelzebub himself, why willingly put yourself through that!? People get lost on those busses, forced to roam from bus to train to ferry for all eternity like lost souls stuck in purgatory. If Frodo had to rely on NZ public transport he'd still be at the bus-stop today waiting for the bus that never came, arguing with Samwise over the AT mobile app with a laughing Sauron looking on from the Auckland Sky-tower as his Orc armies conquer Middle-Earth.
