A new online tool is helping Taranaki people find out how and when they can travel from A to B by bus.

The digital journey planner is available at, and identical data is also fed to those using Google to find public transport options in the region.

Using the journey planner is simple. Simply enter your starting point and destination, and when you want to travel. The cloud-based tool quickly finds the best range of options, including times and details of any Citylink, Connector and/or Southlink bus services that can be used to complete the trip.

The journey planner is optimised for use on mobile devices and also works well on PCs.

"It takes the hassle out of finding out whether and how you can use one of the Taranaki Regional Council’s bus services to get where you want to go," says the Council’s Transport Services Manager, Chris Clarke. "It makes timetables and route information much easier to use and we hope it will encourage people to give public transport a go."
