 How to catch the bus

  • Check the direction of the bus by noting which coloured route is being followed first (either PINK or BLUE ), and matching this to the colour of the lines on the map.
  • Go to your closest bus stop in good time.
  • Signal the bus driver and pay as you get in.

From the town terminal at Trafalgar Sq the bus begins a circular route.

The PINK route and the BLUE route, join together at Karaka St and make a loop circuit.

Services departing Trafalgar Sq on the PINK route to Castlecliff will return to town on the BLUE route and vice versa.

You can catch the bus at any bus stop on the route and pay only one fare. The bus alternates the direction it travels around the loop, so there are bus stops on both sides of the road and you can get into town regardless of which direction the bus travels.

The timetable and bus routes are colour coded to make it easy to see which way the bus travels around the loop.
