The bus is a reasonably good deal - one of the Airbus Express (Airport Bus Service) runs down Symonds street and stops pretty close to the University. Also, to compare apples with apple, an adult fair is $28 return if you do it like that. Bus are also quite frequent. (I've caught this bus a few times). The url for this service is http://www.airbus.co.nz. Also, traffic in Auckland can be unpredictable and pretty bad -if you need to commute anytime near rush hour the bus will be faster asthere are bus lanes for part of the trip.
Last time I took a taxi from near Symonds street to the airport it only cost about $45. Looking at http://www.discounttaxis.co.nz it appears they are offring flat rate pricing of $35-$40 to/from the city - if that rate is correct, its a much better deal then a shuttle, which often stop along the way and waste time. ( I confessed to being biased against shuttles, which strike me as being overpriced for what they do)
