Buses back, with lower capacity
Gizzybus has resumed most of its regular service.
However, to comply with Covid-19 there is reduced passenger capacity and buses will not be stopping at Beetham Lifestyle Village or Kiri Te Kanawa Retirement Village.
All passengers using the bus service will also need to fill out a registration form for contact-tracing purposes.
Cash fares and smartcard use is available again. To minimise contact from handling cash, customers are advised to bring the correct change if possible.
Gisborne District Council says people should plan ahead and allow plenty of time to get to their destination as increased demand could lead to buses reaching capacity and causing delays.
WakaKura school buses are also ready for increased passenger volume from schools reopening. Students need to check in with their schools to make sure they are on the updated register.
