It’s a bright orange bus that has now made getting to the hospital easier. Forget about having to battle for a carpark - just hop on the Comet and it will drop you right outside. With bus stops between the hospital and the Base being served every 15 minutes (between 6.30am-7pm weekdays and half hourly evenings and weekends) you can don’t have to wait long for the bus.

Hi there fellow Hamiltonians!

It's Susi and the BUSIT customer focus team, based at the Transport Centre in the CBD. If you're looking to get from one end of the city to the other in record transit time - hop on a Comet!

You might have seen the shiny new fleet of orange and silver Comet buses travelling through Hamilton already. This new service is frequent like the Orbiter, except, the Comet travels in a straight line through the city!

Wait at any bus stop along the Comet route between Waikato Hospital and The Base and a Comet will zoom past to do pick-ups every 15 minutes, between 6.30am-7pm weekdays and half hourly evenings and weekends. Comet buses will also service the Mahoe and Glenview areas every half an hour between 6.30am-7pm weekends, and hourly evenings and weekends.

Call us on 0800 205 305 or come into the Transport Centre on the corner of Bryce St and Angelsea St to chat to a team member.
