Public Transport in Otago in Alert Level 3

Valid from Tuesday, Aug 31, 2021 2:41 PM

For Level 3 from 1 September, 2021: 

  • Public transport in Dunedin will continue to operate with a reduced service.
    • This means in Dunedin all routes will continue to run a Saturday service during the week with the exception of two services, route 1 Palmerston and 80/81 Mosgiel Circuit operating their normal timetables. The weekend timetable is unchanged.
  • In Queenstown, the service is mostly hourly. New Timetables are available here
  • Bus travel is NOT free (unless travelling with an off-peak SuperGold concession).
    • If you do need to pay by cash, you can do so with the driver. Still enter at the rear and tell the driver you need to top up. Try to keep your distance and if you are topping up your card, top up with a large amount please to avoid topping up again.

Some reminders for travel in Alert Level 3:

  • Back door entry, tag on/off at the back door reader. If you need to use the front door, please talk to your driver about your particular needs when the bus arrives.
  • Scan the COVID QR codes provided. If you don’t have the official COVID tracker app, keep a manual diary of your travel.
  • You must wear your mask. Remember, some drivers are exempt from wearing a mask if it affects their ability to drive.
  • When you are waiting for the bus, keep a 2 metre distance from other waiting passengers.

Timetable information

This cannot be changed during this temporary COVID response. The website timetables and Hub e-stops are up to date for Dunedin, in the usual place, and for Queenstown we have clear navigation to newly created online COVID timetables.  However we are not able to change the street timetables or those on Google or Transit. Transit will show real time tracking.
