Bay of Plenty Regional Council manages the regional Baybus bus network.

This includes Bayhopper buses in the Western and Eastern Bay, and Cityride buses in Rotorua, as well as many rural services.

The Council's Transport Team makes it easier and safer to get you where you need to be. We can help you to use alternative modes of transport – whether it is catching a bus, biking or walking. 

To contact the Transport Team call 0800 884 880 and ask for transport.
