I spent some time in Whangarei (CBD and Okara Centre) yesterday, and I noticed that very few businesses displayed an NZ COVID Tracer QR poster on their premises.
So here's my message to all the businesses in the Whangarei and Bream Bay area: If you're too complacent and indifferent to be a part of The Team and can't be bothered to invest about 5 to 10 minutes to request your poster here, print it and display it, then I can't be bothered spending my time and money at your business.
It's that simple. Really.
Whangarei’s CityLink public buses are now able to accept a new contactless ‘Bee Card’. Bee Card is a new prepaid card, also being adopted by a number of other regions around New Zealand as part of a move towards a cashless society.
While cash will still be accepted on CityLink buses, Bee Cards should make boarding faster and easier for passengers.
To help people get started with the Bee Card, the card fee for online orders will be waived until Monday 31 August, after which Bee Cards will cost $5.
