Naked Bus Northland Services Continue as Normal

Naked Bus Northland Services Continue as Normal

Naked Bus the only long distance bus operator running a full service in the Far North Following a weekend of wild weather which caused major flooding across much of the far North and resulted in numerous road closures, low-cost bus service provider, Naked Bus has this morning reassured commuters that their bus services between the Bay of Islands and Auckland will continue to operate almost to normal schedule - with just a few minor changes:

• All services will run to and from Paihia as normal. There may be some delays due to diversions.

• KeriKeri will be served in the afternoon only.

• Due to the closure of State Highway 1 at Towai, the service will only travel as far as Paihia stops between Kamo, Whangarei buses will not serve Kawakawa.

Passengers booked from Kawakawa should make their way to Paihia or Kaikohe to board the bus.

• Buses will make an additional stop at Kaikohe to serve passengers who have not been able to travel on other operators’ services.

These revised services will operate until State Highway 1 is reopened.

Naked Bus will be endeavouring to provide as little disruption to Northland commuters as possible as they face a major post-storm clean-up.

Bookings can be made online as usual for the Bay of Islands -

Auckland service and customers are strongly advised to provide a mobile phone number so that they can be contacted should there be any delays or changes to their service.

Bookings can be made online at nakedbus.com. Up-to-date disruption notices can be viewed at nakedbus.com/nz/bus/disruption-notices.
