Hamilton Map

Plan your visit to Hamilton with our handy maps.

 

Hamilton Transport Centre

Hamilton Transport Centre is located on the corner of Bryce Street and Anglesea Street. It is the central hub for passenger services in Hamilton, regional and national bus services.  

Ticketing and information counters are available within the centre, as well as a café and public toilets.

 

BUSIT (Local Bus)

Waikato Regional Council is responsible for the region’s bus services.  We operate 24 bus services within Hamilton as well as 12 regional services.

In total, our buses serve more than 1,000 bus stops and carry around four million passengers a year. And we try to ensure that our buses are as accessible as possible for those who are mobility, visually or hearing impaired. 

The Transport Centre is situated on the corner of Bryce Street and Anglesea Street, Hamilton. Most of our bus services travel to and from the Hamilton Transport Centre. Inside the main building, we have a staffed BUSIT counter open from 8am to 4.30pm Monday to Friday. Come in and see us to find out anything and everything about buses, or to buy or top-up a Bee Card. 


Flex into the city at night

We're trialling the Flex city bus service Friday and Saturday nights in January and February.
Need a convenient, reliable and comfortable ride to and from Hamilton's CBD? Over the trial period, all services are free* - help us perfect the service before we officially launch with $2 one way fares later in February. 

Buses are smaller and provide a more direct link to where you need to go. Flex is a ride share service – it is likely that other passengers may share the vehicle with you. It’s more flexible - make your journey based around your timetable, not a traditional bus timetable. Prebook from a week before to 15 minutes before you’re ready to go.


Flex to Hamilton Airport

Get from town to the airport for only $3 each way. 
Departing from the Hamilton Transport Centre and Hamilton Airport. Prebook your seat via the app – for only $3 each way – and your luggage travels for free.
Flex is available for airport travel 10am-4pm, seven days a week.

Te Huia Train

Te Huia will not operate when either Waikato or Auckland are at Alert Level 3 or 4.

Te Huia is the passenger rail service that connects Waikato to Auckland. 

Capable of carrying over 500 passengers per day, Te Huia will transform the journey of Waikato commuters travelling between Hamilton, Huntly and Auckland.

Te Huia weekday services will begin travelling to The Strand in central Auckland to a new timetable when Te Huia resumes.

The Great Journeys of New Zealand

Interislander

The Interislander ferry is the longest running Cook Strait ferry service in New Zealand. Interislander sails between Wellington (North Island) and Picton (South Island). Our Interislander ferry is known as one of the most beautiful ferry journeys in the world and one of New Zealand's most iconic tourism experiences. The Interislander is one of the unmissable Great Journeys of New Zealand. It connects to our scenic rail experiences; the Coastal Pacific, which runs from Picton to Christchurch, and the Northern Explorer which journeys through the heart of the North Island.


Northern Explorer (Temporary suspension)

New Zealand's longest running passenger service, the Northern Explorer is a long distance scenic train service running between Auckland and Wellington, stopping at Palmerston North, Ohakune, National Park and Hamilton. The journey through Tongariro National Park, with its three spectacular volcanic mountains – Tongariro, Ngāuruhoe and Ruapehu – is a highlight, a place of extremes and surprises, where snow-blanketed fields, ancient lava flows and dense beech forests can be seen side by side.
