For using the bus is launching on the 27th July when fare charging resumes.
The Bee Card makes boarding faster, and easier for you. Just tag on by holding your card to the Bee Card reader as you board the bus, and tag off when you leave. If you already have an existing bus card you will need to replace it with a registered Bee Card. For a limited time, getting a Bee Card is free. The easiest way to get your new Bee Card is to go online at beecard.co.nz and have it posted to you free of charge (could take up to 10 working days). Alternatively, pick up your Bee Card from a bus driver and register the card online at Beecard.co.nz, or pick up from a Bay of Plenty Regional Council office at Regional House, 1 Elizabeth Street Tauranga.
