HiNZ has arranged for a shuttle bus service between the Novotel hotel and the venue each day during the conference. You can catch the bus by waiting at the designated area outside the Novotel hotel. (You don't have to be staying at the Novotel to use the conference bus - it is available to all conference delegates.)


BUS TRANSFERS - Between hotel and venue

Bus Route

The bus shuttle services runs on a loop between the start time and end time. Each loop is estimated to take 15 minutes depending on how long it takes people to get on/off the bus. If you are not staying at the Novotel at 7 Alma Street you can still catch the bus - simply walk to it from your location.


Walking distance from other hotels to Novotel

  • Novotel Tainui Hamilton – 7 Alma Street - 0 minutes
  • Ibis Tainui Hamilton - 18 Alma Street - 1 minute
  • (other details coming soon)


How to catch the bus

  • Look for the Digital Health Week NZ sign in the bus window.
  • The buses are free for HiNZ delegates (it is a trust-based system - you are not required to wear a delegate badge or provide a ticket to the driver).
  • The buses will not 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 cannot detour to other locations. 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.
  • If you wish to order a taxi instead, the local taxi companies are: Hamilton Taxis 0800 477 477 and Waikato Taxis 0800 200 099

If you have a question about the venue shuttle service please email or visit the registration desk at Claudelands.
