Road Safety

We want all attendees to be safe as pedestrians, passengers, cyclists, or drivers at the Zespri AIMS Games.  

  1. Have a backup driver if you’re feeling too tired to drive.

  2. Don’t let kids distract you when you’re driving.

  3. There’s lots of extra traffic on the roads in the Tauranga region with the Zespri AIMS Games in town and many who are new to the roading layout – keep alert!

  4. Allow extra time to get to your destinations.

  5. AA safer driver tips –

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 three free Park & Ride buses:

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

  • Service runs from Sunday to Friday

  • 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 Baypark Arena please check with the driver if the bus is going to the Mount Hot Pools or Gordon Spratt 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.

COVID 19 – Use of face coverings are mandatory on the Zespri AIMS Games Park and Ride buses. 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
