Please note that due to the COVID-19 lockdown, public transport is currently focused on allowing essential workers to travel between their homes and workplaces, and to allow the public access to food and medical care.

We want to keep our community safe. It’s really important that each time you use the bus, your trip details and contact information are recorded. This is so we can provide this information to the Ministry of Health if it is required.

Every time you use the bus, you must either call us on 0508 800 800, or fill in this form.

Please see our bus notices page for full timetable information.

At Horizons, we help you get from A to B through the provision of public passenger transport services and a coordinated approach to regional transport planning. In doing so we chair the Regional Transport and Regional Passenger Transport Committees, develop and implement the region's Public Transport Plan, subsidise passenger services in areas where they cannot be provided commercially, coordinate a community road safety programme and manage the Total Mobility service that provides discounted transport for people with disabilities.

Considering our geographical size and low population density, our region is relatively well served by public transport and our buses carry a higher ratio of passengers per head of population than some other similar regions. Our long-term vision is to provide a land transport system that is environmentally sound, safe, efficient, sustainable and accessible. Accessibility of public transport includes being financially affordable, so we subsidise public transport for the elderly, students and beneficiaries.
