Dunedin Bus Timetable booklet

This timetable introduces some changes to Dunedin bus services, effective 18 September 2017.

They’re part of a programme of changes being made over several years. The changes were first outlined in 2014 in the Otago Regional Council Public Transport Plan– a plan that signalled a fundamental shift in our approach to public transport in Otago.


Route and timetable changes

If your bus route changed already in 2015 or 2016, you won’t see many changes. Most other routes will have changes in keeping with the principles of the Public Transport Plan.

The changes have at their heart buses that come more often and get you where you’re going faster. Routes with changes will be more direct, and we’re moving towards getting most urban peak services running every 15, 20 or 30 minutes.

Meet the Ridge Runner…

An entirely new service, the Ridge Runner will connect the campus with the Gardens, Maori Hill, Roslyn, Belleknowes, Mornington, the Glen, Carisbrook and Cargill’s Corner, finishing up at Andersons Bay Rd. It’s a new kind of route for the Dunedin service – and along with the planned bus hub it’s designed to help make it easy to connect from service to service, so you can access the whole network more easily.

Where does the bus hub come into it?

The bus hub is also part of the changes first outlined in the Public Transport Plan. Combined with the principles of more direct services, reduced journey time, and buses that come more often, its planned to help open up the whole network by making transfers from one service to another more straightforward. We intend to publish a new bus timetable booklet with the planned bus hub.
