New bus stops are coming

Thank you for your patience regarding the lack of bus stops on the new parts of the 4 Flagstaff, 4N Flagstaff North and the new RC Rototuna Circular routes.

 A number of new bus stops will be installed by 23 February. There are also other places along the routes we would like to see bus stops installed, however have had opposition from local residents about some of the locations.  We’re working with Hamilton City Council, who manage the bus stops on next steps for these.

The following bus stops will be installed by 23 February:

4 Flagstaff route:

• 17 Endeavour Ave

• 59 Cumberland Drive

• Borman Road, near Radius Glaisdale on both sides of the road

• Both sides of Borman Road, near North City Road

• Kimbrae Drive stops along from Rototuna High School will be installed when the road is opened

Changes have been made to the following routes:

All of the above will have timetable changes and many will also have route changes.

New route:

Due to recent passenger feedback we’ve made some further changes to the new bus routes set to start from Saturday 27 January:

2 Silverdale
• The 6.20am service from Nevada Road to town will now start at 6.10am

5 Chartwell
• Some of the morning services will now start 10 minutes earlier in order to meet school start times at Dio and HGHS

10 Hillcrest
• Services in the middle of the day and weekends will now travel via Brookfield Street and Macfarlane Street in the Hayes Paddock area. Only peak services will use the part of Naylor Street between Grey and Macfarlane streets.

4 Flagstaff, 16 Rototuna and RC Rototuna Circular
• Due to the Kimbrae Drive extension by Rototuna High Schools not being open yet, bus services will instead travel along Borman Road.

Rototuna and Flagstaff changes

Thank you for the recent feedback on proposed bus routes in your area. Changes have now been confirmed and buses will run more often, travel further north and provide better connections to Rototuna High Schools.

All buses will be new, or recently refurbished. We’re also working to get free wi-fi on board all Hamilton buses soon.

The current 16 Rototuna, RDE and RDW services will be combined into two new, seven day a week bus routes: RC Rototuna Circular, and 16 Rototuna, providing half hourly services weekdays and hourly services on evenings and weekends.

Limited trips in peak times on the RC Rototuna Circular service will travel to/from town.

Huntington Drive will be served more often – with a seven day a week, all day service to town provided by the 5 Chartwell route, as well as a dedicated schooltime service to Rototuna High Schools.

The 4 Flagstaff service will travel further north, taking in Hare Puke Drive and the new part of Borman Road, and travel through to the Rototuna Shopping Centre.

The 4N Flagstaff North bus route will continue for school trips to Southwell, HBHS and Sacred Heart, but also travel via Borman Road for Rototuna High Schools. There will two buses, one travelling via Borman Road and the other via Discovery Drive and Thomas Road.

All timetables have changed. Please check the times for your routes.
