Bus Talk - Bus Hub FAQs

Thursday 28 February 2019

The new Central City Bus Hub is opening soon. Find out what this means for you.

What is the new Bus Hub?

If you haven’t already heard, the new Central City Bus Hub on Great King Street will be the heart of Dunedin’s bus network. The whole network will be connected by the Hub, with all citybound services running through it.

The new Hub will have ten bus stops and amenities including shelters, bench seating and toilets, as well as electronic wayfinding signage and stops with audio buttons.

Soon after opening, it will have a coffee kiosk, and offer WiFi free of charge.

How will this affect my route?

After the Bus Hub opens, all central citybound bus services will travel via the Hub.

We will take several days to phase services into the Hub, and we ask for your patience during this time.

All services, with the exception of 15, 70, 80 and 81, will incorporate the Hub. Keep a look out for detailed information about when your service will roll through the Hub later next month.

Are fares changing?

No! Fares remain the same for all services.

Don’t forget GoCard users can transfer buses within the same zone for free within a 30-minute time limit.

Will I have to get off at the Hub?

Only if the Hub is your destination, or if you want to make a transfer to another service.

How does the Hub improve public transport?

Dunedin buses need to service a growing population of both Dunedinites and visitors to our city.

The Bus Hub has been centrally positioned on Great King Street off Moray Place to reduce traffic on the busiest stretch of George Street, centralise bus routes and make transferring simple. For first-time users, including tourists, it will provide an easy point of reference and a simple way to find bus routes or transfer between them.
