Bus stops and shelters

There are over 500 bus stops in Tauranga, some of which have shelters for increased user comfort. In Tauranga there are two types of bus shelter.  One is the Council bus shelter and the other is an Adshel bus shelter, which is managed privately as advertising space. Both types of shelter are used by the Bay Hopper bus service to pick-up and drop-off passengers. You should always wait at a designated bus stop and signal to the bus driver to pull over.

To report damage to a bus shelter or to request to be installed in your area phone Council on 07 577 7000.
