• Services running to Sunday timetables and are for essential travel only

    IMPORTANT: Please register your trip for contact tracing purposes at: www.ecan.govt.nz/trace​

    Recently we were asked by the Ministry of Health to provide details of all passengers on each trip for contact tracing purposes. Please register your trip using the unique bus ID number written on posters within the vehicle. If you are unable to do this while on board​ you can register your trip afterward using your trip details instead (route, boarding location, destination and time of trip).

    From Thursday 26 March bus services are running to Sunday timetables, and will be for essential travel only.

    To help protect our drivers and to maintain the service, buses will have rear boarding only, and fares will not be required. ​

    In addition to the regular Sunday timetable there are a small number of extra trips on some routes in the early morning and late evening. The Diamond Harbour Ferry has a special timetable and route 135 is operating to its Saturday timetable.

    The Bus Interchange is closed and all central city services will use the Manchester St super stops instead.
