More buses between Tauranga and Auckland and now serving Waihi, Paeroa, Ngatea & Katikati

13 April 2020® is delighted to announce more buses between Mount Maunganui, Tauranga and Auckland - there are now two buses a day at convenient times. One bus goes via Hamilton, as now, while the second bus goes via these places:

  • Katikati
  • Paeroa
  • Waihi
  • Waihi Beach
  • Ngatea and
  • Maramarua.

This gives the fastest service between Mt Maunganui / Tauranga and Auckland as we miss out the detour via Thames and avoid any delays on the Kopu Bridge.

Ngatea is joined to our network for the first time - an important town not served by any other network. We are also offering direct services between Katikati, Paeroa, Waihi and Waihi beach to Auckland for the first time.

The services connect at Ngatea with buses to Whitianga (if you are travelling between Whitianga and Auckland or Tauranga, please book separate tickets via Ngatea - the buses connect and will wait for each other).

If you are travelling further north, you can catch the nakedbus to Whangarei by changing in Auckland.

Customers in Whakatane, Opotiki and Kawerau can now travel same day to Auckland by changing at Tauranga (unfortunately this is not yet available in reverse - though we are working on it). Just book a ticket to Tauranga, then a separate ticket from Tauranga to Auckland.

The new services leave Tauranga and Auckland at lunchtime seven days a week.

All of these new services start on Monday 7 May, 2007.

As always fares start at $1 (plus 70c booking fee).

Great customer service!

I have used nakedbus before and will continue to recommend your service, not only because of economy but also because of great customer service!

Carbon Neutral

Really glad for the service, which has been very helpful and cost efficient. Have also been delighted with the friendly and helpful drivers. Lately we’ve been hearing that [competitor] plans to go carbon neutral, and were thinking you should do that too.
