Bus Travel

InterCity, along with its subsidiary company Newmans, runs regular bus services for the entire region. Comfortable, reasonably priced, and efficient, both are particularly useful to backpackers and people who are in no particular hurry.

The Napier-to-Auckland trip takes 8 hours, Napier–Rotorua is 3½ hours, Napier–Taupo is 2¼ hours, and Napier–Wellington is 6 hours. Frequent local services go between Napier and Hastings. There's one bus service a day to Gisborne, with Newmans and InterCity, from either Auckland, via Rotorua, or from Wellington, via Napier. These trips take a solid day.
