What's new?

  • A new timetable so buses can stay ontime; this might mean running less service outside of busy periods.
  • The time between buses will increase to 60min early in the morning or in the middle of the day and throughout the weekend.
  • Changes to how buses operate around the CBD to make it more intuitive and easier to use.
  • City Mall stop moved to Amohau Street.

So what?

These changes are designed to be cost neutral. Fixing the timetable will make buses run on time but to do this without spending additional money will mean running less services in less busy times. This will give more people confidence to use the bus service in the busiest parts of the day but may prevent people using the service on weekends as the wait between buses will be long and inconvenient.

Moving the City Mall stop and changing how buses travel through the CBD will make using the bus less confusing and make the mall (and other destinations) closer to our stops.

What does it cost?

These changes won’t add anything to your rates bill.
