The purpose of the RUB is to standardise urban bus requirements across regional councils and Auckland Transport (AT) to create efficiencies and improve the usability and accessibility of buses for all customers.
Since the RUB was first issued in 2008 it has been reviewed twice (in 2011 and 2014) and updated in 2013 to accommodate double-decker buses.
The Requirements for Urban Buses in New Zealand 2014 (RUB) is currently being reviewed in line with its stated 3-year update objective.
