FREE BUSES
Park the car and ride sustainably

With over 20,000 visitors to the city, the roads are going to be busy, so Tauranga City Council and Bay of Plenty Regional Council are once again putting on free buses to make it easy for you to get to your games.

Free Zespri AIMS Games buses

Free for everyone in the community! The Zespri AIMS Games buses will run on a loop around the major venues:

  • Mount Hot Pools
  • Blake Park
  • Baywave
  • Mercury Baypark Arena
  • Gordon Spratt Reserve

There will be a special free bus service operating for the opening ceremonies. Free buses will also run between Tauranga Racecourse and The Historic Village on Tuesday 10 September for the orienteering event at the Village.

FREE BAYHOPPER BUSES

All Tauranga and Western Bay Bayhopper buses will be free for athletes, referees, and coaches for the week of the Games. 

Simply show your Zespri AIMS Games app to the driver to ride for free. (Please note, parents and family members are not eligible unless they are a coach or referee. Buses accept cash or Bee Card.)
