Reduction in South Island services for the winter

Wednesday, June 27th, 2007 regrets that it is withdrawing some services for the winter period.

The following services will no longer run, but existing bookings will be honoured:

- Nelson – Takaka
- Nelson – Greymouth
- Nelson – Hanmer Springs
- Hanmer Springs – Christchurch

All other routes remain. Once again, passengers who have booked will be carried.

We plan to run these routes again in the Summer.

We would like to thank all passengers for their support on these routes for the past few months.

Didn’t get a booking reference?

Tuesday, June 26th, 2007

Oops! Due to a computer glitch, some passengers who booked on 26 June did not receive a booking confirmation email with booking reference.

These bookings are still safely in the system.

If you booked on 26 June, please contact us at enquiries and tell us:

  • where you are travelling from
  • where you are travelling to
  • the date you are travelling
  • the time you made the booking yesterday
  • your email address

and we will send you your booking reference. (We need this information to correctly identify your booking).

Sorry about the glitch – but the system is back to normal now!

Note: If you booked your bus tickets at any other time, and you have not received your confirmation email, please check your spam box, as some email systems send the emails there.
