Help us put on the best possible trial.
What we are doing & why.
With improving public transport being aligned with the government’s wellbeing and public transport agenda we believe we can put together a solid business case for long term funding if the demand for the service is proven.
The trial will start early July and run for three months until the end of September.
Timetable and route.
The route will go from Taumarunui to Ohura via SH43 and return the same way.
For efficiency and economic reasons the service needs to be coordinated with the school bus timetable (the service will run during school holidays).
- Taumarunui 08.30 am
- Aukopae 08.55
- Tokirima 09.10
- Mangaparo 09.20
- Ohura 09.30
- Matiere 09.50
- Tuhua 10.00
- Taumarunui 10.30am
The bus for the return journey will leave the Taumarunui Railway Station at 1.30pm.
The cost of the trial is being subsidised by Council. A trip will be $6 return per person (child and adult).
Bus stops in Ohura and Matiere will be at the Cosmopolitan Club in both townships otherwise on SH43 and Ohura Rd in the other towns along the route.
The bus will stop (and pick-up for the return journey) at the the Railway Station with stops at the hospital and New World on demand.
