There have been a number of changes to school routes. Please find all school bus timetables here.
All school students travelling on Tauranga dedicated school bus or Tauranga Urban Bayhopper bus routes can travel for free 24/7. This is a trial and commences 31 January 2022 until 31 December 2022. School children will need a Bee card to travel free except for some dedicated school bus services - please check here.
You must have a Bee Card (with child concession preloaded) to access the service free of charge and avoid being charged a standard adult fare).
This means school children can continue to save at least $16 per week when using their Bee Card on all Bayhopper buses.
The trial does not apply to Route 80 (Katikati Express) and 81 (Omokoroa).
