Park and Ride is FREE for all!

It’s easy for athletes, officials, and supporters to get around at the Zespri AIMS Games, catch one of the free Park & Ride buses:

  • From the Mount Hot Pools to Gordon Spratt Reserve stopping at Blake Park, Baywave and Trustpower Baypark Arena in both directions.

  • Service runs from Sunday to Friday, including to and from the Opening Ceremonies.

  • Please be at your stop 5 minutes before the bus arrives.

  • The bus will make every effort to keep to the timetable, but heavy traffic may have an impact.

  • Important – At Baywave and Trustpower Baypark Arena please check with the driver if the bus is going to the Mount Hot Pools or Gordon Spratt Reserve as the bus stop uses the same stop in either direction.

  • To get to other venues use the Bayhopper buses, free for participants, coaches, and referees only – must show your Zespri AIMS Games App. 

  • To plan your trip download Transit App, or use Google maps.


Use of face coverings are mandatory on the Zespri AIMS Games Park and Ride buses, unless you are exempt from wearing one. Exemptions for wearing a mask or face covering include:

  • children under the age of 12

  • a person who has a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask or face covering safely or comfortably
