Lake Hayes Estate Queenstown Direct No. 5 Trial

From Monday 13 January, Orbus introduces a new route to make it easier for passengers in Lake Hayes Estate and Shotover Country to travel directly into Queenstown without having to change at the Frankton Hub.

The new service, No. 5, will run every 30 minutes at peak times on weekdays. Currently the No. 4 service also runs every 30 minutes, so services will alternate offering a departure from Nerin Square in Lake Hayes Estate every 15 minutes at peak. This gives Lakes Hayes Estate and Shotover Country residents a service to Frankton every 15 minutes.

The No. 5 will continue to Queenstown via the Frankton Hub and then via the same stops as the citybound services, removing the need for passengers to transfer at the Hub. The No. 5 will also travel the same route back from Queenstown to Lake Hayes Estate, starting at 8:08am.

The service is being trialled for the duration of 2020.
