New routes and changes from 8 July

Bay of Plenty Regional Council will start two new bus services on Monday July 8.

Pāpāmoa via Maungatapu to the CBD (Route 36) and Route 71 Matua via Brookfield to the CBD will begin.

Both services as well as the recently implemented Route 41 have come about following public feedback.

Route 70 Matua via Ngatai Road  will change and offer Monday to Friday peak hour services only, (before 9 am and from 3 pm to 8 pm). It will no longer operate:

  • Weekdays between 9 am and 3 pm
  • Saturday and Sunday

Instead customers will be able to use Route 71 Matua via Brookfield.
