Inglewood bus-stop change

Connector logo. New Inglewood bus stops for the Connector bus service were trialled successfully during the month of June and have now become permanent.

The main bus stop is at Moa Street, where the inter-regional buses stop. This location offers a shelter and an adjacent car park.

The bus will also stop ‘on demand’ at the Top Dairy (purple dairy) on the corner of Rata Street and Hinau Street. To use this stop, you must clearly signal the driver as the bus approaches, or tell the driver you want to get off there. The bus will stop at the nearest safe parking space to the dairy. Be prepared to walk to it.

The bus no longer stops at the health centre in Brown Street.
