We're excited to launch a free Bay of Plenty regional bus service for tertiary students in 2020! 🚍
The service will mean students in Katikati, Rotorua and Whakatāne will be able to travel to and from Tauranga for classes. With these buses, students from around the Bay will be able to get to their classes, without the added stress of finding and paying for transport.
The service is a joint venture with Toi Ohomai Institute of Technology and the Bay of Plenty Regional Council.

Sandy Urwin wanted to expand the retail offering within her small business Animal Natural Health Centre.
She considered raising funds by selling a stake to an investor but didn’t want to compromise on quality or her vision for the business. She decided to partner with Prospa to achieve her dreams.
A small business loan helped Sandy increase the variety and volume of stock available for customers – ultimately boosting monthly turnover.
As water usage has been extreme and the forecast is hot and dry, a sprinkler ban has now been put in place for our city.
From today, the use of all sprinklers and irrigation systems is banned until further notice.
You can still water your garden, by hand, between 5 and 8AM and 7 and 10PM.
