What does this mean for parking and transport?

​The wellbeing of our community and our team are our number one priority. We are closely monitoring the advice from the Government and Ministry of Health and will be updating our website as new information becomes available.

Alert Level 1

What's happening with road works?
When in Alert Level 1, our road works programme will be business as usual. Our transportation team will continue to receive and prioritise service requests from the public.

What about parking?
If you are planning to use carparks (on-street, off-street or carpark buildings), please consider your safety and where possible use contactless payments if available. If you need to make payment with coins/notes at a parking meter or pay station, please sanitise or wash your hands as soon as practicable afterwards. 

To make a contactless payment at on-street parking meters, use the PayMyPark APP. The PayMyPark APP makes parking easy, simply find a park and start your parking. No more guessing how long you need to pay for. Running late? Just extend your parking, no need to run back to the meter and no need to touch coins. Finished early? Stop your parking and get a refund back to your account. The PayMyPark APP is also able to calculate your two-hours free parking in the CBD.

The Garden Place carpark remains open. Where possible, please use contactless payments. If this is not an option, please sanitise or wash your hands as soon as practicable afterwards.

Our parking team will continue as business as usual during Alert Level 1.

Is the Hamilton Transport Centre building open?
The transport centre building remains open to the public during Alert Level 1. It is advised to still follow the COVID-19 risk management practices relating to social distancing and contact tracing. If you enter/exit the transport centre, please utilise the QR codes that are available to enable traceability of your moves if required. ​

The public toilet block outside the transport centre remains open, and additional cleaning measures will be in place.

What about buses?
The bus service is run by Waikato Regional Council. For all information and updates on bus services, please visit www.busit.co.nz or www.waikatoregion.govt.nz. ​
