Unprecedented Response to New eBus Service!

A wave of enthusiasm has engulfed the region in response to the brand-new eBus service!

Within its inaugural week, an impressive 15,500 journeys were clocked—a staggering 44 percent leap from the former NBus.

Contrasting the old NBus's daily average of 1,800 passengers, the modern eBus is cruising at an impressive daily average of 2,600 passengers.

The inaugural routes to Motueka and Wakefield have struck a chord, amassing 1,200 journeys in their first operational week.

Weekends witnessed an exceptional surge too, with passenger numbers soaring to 2,709—an astonishing 195 percent escalation over the old NBus figures.
