Free joint regional bus service announced for tertiary students

The Team from University of Waikato - Tauranga

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.
