Regional Public Transport Plan consultation

The Regional Council is interested in your thoughts on public transport in the region.

About the draft Plan

We have released our draft Regional Public Transport Plan for the next 3 years and welcome submissions until Monday 6th May. 

The draft Plan sets out how we manage the goBay bus and Total Mobility services currently provided and proposes some improvements we would like to investigate.

Here is the draft plan -

What we want to hear about

We are particularly interested in your thoughts on:

  • What/if any public transport improvements would you like to see? Where are the gaps? Do you agree that our planned activities on Page 19 of the Plan are the right ones?
  • How could we improve the quality of our public transport?
  • Do you think there is a need for more services in Wairoa and Central Hawke’s Bay? 
  • Do our Total Mobility services meet your needs? If not, what could be improved?
