On Demand bus services for Hamilton

Published on 18/01/2022 at 8:59 am.

Hamilton has launched an on-demand bus service - Busit Flex On Demand, to operate as a late-night central city business district bus run, operating on a Friday and Saturday nights between 6pm to 4am.

Four 12-seat buses, each with wheelchair accessibility, are being used for the late-night services, with the fare set at $2 per person. 'Busit Flex On Demand' replaces the night rider bus and is operated by the Waikato Regional Council under the council's 'Busit' brand.

The Busit Flexi On Demand service is an one-year trial and operates as a “corner to corner” service, rather than taking passengers directly to their door. The on-demand service will use aggregate demand, so journeys from the Hamilton city centre will typically take longer than a taxi ride.

Reservations can be made through the Flex On Demand phone app that is available on IPhone and Android.
