Auckland Transport's new CEO wants services back to pre-Covid levels.

Dean Kimpton wants to lift public transport usage by 20 percent in the next year.

He says that involves employing another 360 bus drivers and up to 50 ferry skippers.

"So this is not an easy task, it's going to take a lot of employment, it's going to take a lot of training and we have to implement new schedules."
