Kaimai Shuttle

The University offers a free first-in, first-served shuttle service between the Hamilton and Tauranga campuses.

This service is available to enrolled students who live in one region and are required to travel from one campus to the other for classes, research supervision, or matters that are related to their university study. It is also available to staff who require transport between campus for work-related purposes.

The Kaimai Shuttle runs Monday to Friday during teaching weeks of Trimesters A, B and C, and teaching periods G and H (excluding public holidays). It does not run during teaching recesses, study and exam weeks. The shuttle service is also available to staff.

The Kaimai Shuttle will arrive and depart from the following locations:

Durham Lane area (ātea/courtyard).

Note: Durham Lane is on the western side of the campus and is not on Google Maps. It runs parallel between Cameron Road and Durham Street.

The shuttle leaves promptly, so ensure you are at the departure point at least ten minutes beforehand
