We run Timaru's public transport system, which includes MyWay by Metro.

MyWay by Metro(external link) is on-demand public transport. It has replaced Timaru's fixed-route bus service as a long-term trial.

Timaru also has three school bus services and a service connecting Timaru and Temuka.

Bus operators are awarded services and routes through a tender process.

Information about fares and timetables is available on our Metro Timaru website(external link).

Bus infrastructure

Bus stops, seats, shelters and bus priority measures in Timaru are provided and maintained by the Timaru District Council(external link). If you have a comment or suggestion about bus infrastructure in Timaru, please contact the council.

  • Discuss requests or suggestions for a route or timetable with your local community board or residents’ group — or send your feedback to Metro
