InterCity bus stop on the move
Published on 03 March 2020
InterCity’s bus stop will be relocated to Taupō Quay on Monday, 16 March 2020.
The new bus stop will be situated in front of the Whanganui Tramways Museum, where Whanganui District Council has installed two new bus shelters and extended the Taupō Quay bus bay area.
The Council’s Chief Operating Officer, Bryan Nicholson, says, “The current InterCity bus stop is not in an ideal location for visitors and safety concerns have been raised by passengers due to its isolation.
“The new location will better showcase what Whanganui has to offer as it is in the heart of the city with visitor information, shops, restaurants and other facilities available.”
Bus passengers will be able to use the public toilets in the Whanganui i-SITE Visitor Information Centre, at 31 Taupō Quay, until a new twin Exeloo public toilet is installed in the Tramways Museum storage area.
InterCity’s General Manager of NZ Coachlines and Auckland Tourism, Sam Peate, says planned routes have already been established for buses to enter and exit the city in relation to the new bus stop.
“We’re pleased to be able to offer our passengers a new and improved bus stop in a more convenient, central location,” he says.
Passengers can book tickets online or through the Whanganui i-SITE Visitor Information Centre at 31 Taupō Quay.
InterCity plans to lease out their existing Ridgway Street premises.
