Conference Shuttle Bus

HiNZ has arranged free shuttle buses to/from the conference venue. The bus route and stops are detailed at the bottom of this page. (If you aren't staying at one of the hotels on the bus route you can still catch the bus - simply walk to the nearest hotel from your location.)

 

How to catch the bus
  • Look for the HiNZ sign in the bus window.
  • The buses are free for HiNZ delegates (it is a trust based system - you aren’t required to be wear a delegate badge or provide a ticket to the driver).
  • The buses won’t stop for long at each location as they need to complete the loop in the shortest possible time to get back again, so please make sure you are ready when they arrive or you will need to wait for the next bus to arrive.
  • Seats can’t be booked: first on the bus gets the seat.
  • The buses can't detour to other motels/hotels.

Seats are not guaranteed

It is impossible for the bus to stop at every motel in Rotorua. We have estimated likely passenger numbers and the best stops, based on delegate answers during the registration and on information we have received from hotels. But as people's intentions change it is difficult for us to predict whether the buses will be half empty or completely full. We therefore cannot guarantee that everyone who wishes to catch the bus will get a seat.

 

If you wish to order a taxi instead, the local taxi companies are:

  • Rotorua Taxis 0800 500 000
  • Taxi Cabs Rotorua (07) 347 9797 or 0800 4 TAXIS

If you are relying on a taxi to get to/from the conference, we strongly recommend you book your taxi in advance. Taxis in Rotorua can be difficult to obtain at peak times unless you have booked.

 

We realise the bus route and availability won't be ideal for everyone, as we need to work within resource constraints. Thank you for your understanding.

 

Bus Route

The buses run on a loop between the start time and end time. Each loop is estimated to take between 15- 25 minutes depending on how long it takes people to get on/off the bus. There are two buses on each morning route.
