BUSIT to Chiefs home games

BUSIT's free rugby shuttle will operate to Chiefs home games at FMG Stadium Waikato this season.

The free bus runs for an hour before the game, and leaves from Hood St (outside the Knox St carpark). The bus departs approximately every 10 minutes and travels via Victoria, Ulster and Abbotsford streets to the ground. Passengers will be picked up from any official bus stop along the way.

Buses will depart directly after the final whistle on Tristram Street near the Mill St intersection. They travel back to the CBD via Anglesea, Knox and Victoria streets. Drop offs will be made at any official bus stop.

University concession

service update

University fares now apply

  • DATE: 1 February 2017

The University of Waikato student and staff concession is now in operation.

From Wednesday 1 February all University of Waikato students and staff will receive a 30% discount on adult BUSIT card fares. This makes travel in Hamilton $1.70 - and is valid at all times to all locations on BUSIT services - not just to and from campus.

Regional services - for example from Huntly to Hamilton will also have a 30% discount applied.

So give bus travel a go - get a BUSIT card and start travelling cheaper - all you need to do is show the driver your University of Waikato staff or student ID and the discount will be applied to your BUSIT card fare.
