Free bus travel for Covid-19 vaccination appointments

Taranaki residents can get a free bus ride to and from their Covid-19 vaccination appointments from this Monday.

With the support of Waka Kotahi NZ Transport Agency, the Taranaki Regional Council is offering free public transport to help residents and their caregiver or dependents attend vaccine appointments and return home afterwards.

To travel for free, simply show the bus driver your appointment letter or text confirmation on your mobile phone. Drivers will only be checking that your appointment is dated for the day of travel.

Remember, face masks and scanning QR codes are mandatory when travelling on public transport.
