Bus to Hawke's Bay Hospital

Bus service

From 1 January 2017, HBDHB announced it is offering free bus transport for outpatients and their caregiver/support person to and from scheduled appointments at Hawke’s Bay Hospital and at Napier Health. This initiative is off to an amazing start with and average increase of 104% over the course of 2017 using the free service - a positive step toward helping ease demand on car parking. Remember children under five also travel free.

The hospital is easily accessible by bus from many Hawke’s Bay locations including to and from Hastings, Napier and Flaxmere.
• Route 10 – Commuter express (Hastings to Napier)
• Route 10 – Commuter Express (Napier to Hastings)
• Route 12 – Hastings to Napier
• Route 12 – Napier to Hastings
• Route 20 – Hastings, Flaxmere, Hastings Loop

Many buses stop right outside Hawke's Bay Hospital and on Omahu Road in both directions.

Some buses also stop on Canning Road and Orchard Road, making it easy to use the bus to get to work or your appointment.

Check the Hawke's Bay Regional Council public transport website for more details of buses leaving shortly, routes and timetables.
