Auckland to Tauranga Bus

If you’re looking for cheaper, faster, funner travel, why not grab the Auckland to Tauranga bus with Skip?

We’re the no stress North Island express and we offer daily services from Auckland to the very beachy spot of Tauranga, with neighbouring Mt Maunganui just a short drive away.

The Auckland to Tauranga bus leaves from the Auckland Central stop outside Sky City at 102 Hobson St and arrives in Tauranga at Wharf St. This is an express bus, so it only stops at Manukau and Hamilton in between, and there’s free WiFi so you can browse the internet and update your social media on the way.

Just head to our booking page and search for the Auckland to Tauranga bus.

Tauranga is known for a relaxed lifestyle and its beaches. The coastline extends along 125km so you can visit bays not only at Tauranga, but also Mt Maunganui, Papamoa, Athenree, Maketu and Ohope. There’s plenty of swimming, fishing, harbour cruises and surfing on offer at these places, and some fantastic local cafes and restaurants.

Not too far down the coast from Tauranga is Whakatane, well known as a base to travel offshore from and visit the active volcano of White Island. And if you are spending a few days in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand’s kiwifruit capital of Te Puke is worth a stop.
