The Waikato Regional Council is planning a significant refresh for the Hamilton city bus network and is seeking input from the public on the planned changes.

Regional transport connections director Mark Tamura said the need for a review had been triggered by changes to public transport use over the past two years and feedback about the kinds of services people want.

"We've seen major changes in how people work, learn and travel around Hamilton and the wider region. More people have spent time working and studying from home and we've seen these habits continue, even as we've moved to the Orange setting of the Covid-19 Protection Framework.

"These changes have given us cause to think about our current network – is it still fit for purpose and how could it be improved. We want to make sure the Hamilton buses work for people when they're needed," Tamura said.
