Timetable changes to Katikati bus service

10 June 2019

Good news for Katikati bus users with the Katikati Express now leaving the town earlier during the week.

Starting on June 17 the bus will leave Katikati Main Street at 6:50am, while Supergold cardholders at Summerset by the Sea will have a 9:00am departure.

“It means those that want to go into the city to watch a movie can do so and catch the return 1.45pm bus at no cost,” says Bay of Plenty Regional Council Public Transport Committee Chairman Lyall Thurston.

“Due to safety concerns we have removed the Ōmokoroa Road gravel pit Park and Ride stop,” Cr Thurston says.

On request passengers can get dropped off at the Park and Ride on the return trip from Tauranga to Katikati.

Regional Council has also declared the Waihī Beach bus trial a success confirming funding for the Town Connector for the next three years.
