New Kennedy Point Bus Service - 501

From Sunday 31st May, the new 501 bus route is now servicing the Kennedy Point ferry terminal area. This service will run between Kennedy Point and Matiatia via Surfdale and Oneroa.

Bus fares must be paid using an AT HOP Card, so remember to have it with you and topped up when disembarking the SeaLink ferry. Waiheke is counted as a single stage, so the fare will be $2.00 per trip for an adult with an AT HOP Card.
