Omokoroa bus services - update on new route and timetable

  • Depart from Tauranga (Wharf Street - Stand D) at 7.55am, 9.40am, 11.25am, 1.10pm, 3.25pm and 5.10pm.

 Other improvements include:

  • A route change to include Cameron Road from 15th Avenue to Wharf Street, and to include Vivian Drive, Harbour View Road and The Esplanade in Ōmokoroa.
  • New bus stops in Ōmokoroa on Vivian Drive, Harbour View Road and Ōmokoroa Road.
  • Fares will remain the same.
  • After 9 am it is free for Supergold cardholders.
  • There is free passenger Wi-Fi available. 
  • Bike racks on the buses are to come in the near future.
