Public transport in Whanganui is changing for the better

From mid-February you’ll be able to hop on a bus every 20 minutes on a new route running across town between Aramoho and Castlecliff.

But what do we call Whanganui’s new bus route?

Auckland has its Inner Link route, Christchurch has the Orbiter, and Hamilton has The Comet – inspire us with a name idea and be in to win one of three $100 grocery vouchers.

Enter online at or drop an entry into your local library before 5.00pm on Thursday, 17 November.

Note: the new route will be an extra service – all existing bus routes will continue to run as normal. You can read more about the new bus route here:
