New Zealand’s newest bus company set to hit the road
20 November 2018
A brand new, low cost, express bus company is hitting New Zealand roads this week – just in time to help lighten the load for Christmas.
Skip™ gives travellers affordable, reliable and faster connections between major North Island cities. It will offer travel between Whangarei, Auckland, Hamilton, Rotorua and Wellington, with fares from as low as $5. More cities are expected to be added as demand grows.
Launched by InterCity Group, operator of New Zealand’s national long distance bus network, CEO John Thorburn says Skip™ is a champion for change.
“We think it’s pretty important that people have choice when it comes to travelling around our country.Skip™ brings Kiwis a new way of travelling – offering cheap travel on an express bus service.”
Never seen in the New Zealand market before, Skip™ is a long-distance express model with limited stops – ensuring passengers arrive at their destinations much faster.
“Skip’s another option for people who want low cost, efficient transport, but also a comfortable ride with modern facilities like free WiFi,” says Thorburn.
To celebrate the launch of New Zealand’s newest bus company, Skip™ is offering over 50,000 seats across its services for just $5.*
