Hamilton bus services


busit students

Thanks to an agreement with the Waikato Regional Council, University staff and students receive an additional 30% subsidy on the BUSIT card fare, paying only $1.70 per trip.

The 30% discount for University of Waikato students will be applied to the adult BUSIT card rate, reducing it from $2.40 to $1.70 a trip, with the university picking up the tab for the rest. The BUSIT card rate is already significantly cheaper than the single adult cash fare of $3.30. The discount covers all routes in Hamilton, plus regional routes to and from Hamilton. The discount will be applied at all times of day and every day of the year for current enrolled university students with a valid ID and BUSIT card.
