My Way Hawkes Bay

Hawkes Bay Regional Council are piloting a new initiative in Hastings and we need your help and feedback.
There is a lot of information to be found about how the bus service will operate on https://www.mywayhb.nz/ or 0800 708 838 or ,facebook.com/goBayHB
What we need right now is volunteers to offer some of their time to ride these buses, check how well they operate, assist passengers with information, and their care on the bus. Full training will be given.
23 May – 3 June
Riding the buses – Talking with current users, letting them know about the upcoming change, showing them the app, handing out information, answering questions
Riding the vans – Helping the 100 test users use the service for the first time, both physically and informatively.

7 June onwards
Riding the vans – Helping new users get familiar with the service, helping seniors and those with disabilities get in and out of the vans (primary focus 9am-3pm).
Stationed at popular stops – Helping those that are looking for buses to understand the old services have been replaced, and how to book.
