Wednesday, May 16th, 2007

New journeys have been released between Whangarei and Auckland. The journeys have been retimed slightly to provide a better connection with services from Hamilton. The new times start on 23 May. We have increased the size of the vehicle on this route so now there are more cheap seats available.
