Commuters nationwide celebrate as Naked Bus unveils passes

Commuters nationwide celebrate as Naked Bus unveils new Discount Travel Passes!

Frequent commuters nationwide have something to celebrate as low-cost bus service provider, Naked Bus, unveiled a range of new Discount Travel Passes.

After receiving numerous requests from passengers for a travel pass designed especially with the frequent commuter in mind, the company famous for its $1 fares has obliged and released the aptly named ‘Naked Commuter’ - discount travel passes ranging from 10% to a massive 50% and priced from just $6.99!

The release of Naked Commuter passes is the newest initiative taken by the young and innovative company to deliver on its ongoing commitment to providing super cheap nationwide bus fares - with the Naked Commuter effectively providing travellers 365 days of discounted fares on all their nationwide Naked Bus bookings and potentially saving passengers hundreds of dollars a year on their bus travel expenses.

Launched in 2006 by founder Hamish Nuttall, the company successfully implemented a low-cost business model similar to that used by British transport company Easyjet and revolutionised cheap bus travel in New Zealand, introducing initiatives such as paperless tickets, an easy self-service online booking system and of course its famous $1 fares. Its price beat guarantee assures customers that they are getting the best deal.

Since its launch, the company has gone from strength to strength and The Naked Bus network currently extends from Kerikeri in the North to Invercargill in the South, with daily services across the country.
