Travel Alert for Half Moon Bay 5:45.p.m Bus Replacement

Bus Replacement

Please be advised due to mechanical issues the 5:45.p.m Auckland to Half Moon Bay services and 6:30.p.m Half Moon Bay to Auckland services from Monday 26th August 2019 to Friday 30th August 2019 will be replaced by bus:

Departing Auckland - Pier 1 Bus Bay 

Departing Half Moon bay - Half Moon Bay Wharf

We understand that the bus replacement on this service has been longer than either you or us would have liked and so we wanted to update you as to the reason why. Wanderer has suffered a significant engine issue, which requires overseas parts which we are currently sourcing. Alternative vessels, such as Starflyte, are still on survey in Whangarei and will be returned to service as quickly as possible.  

In terms of our network, we have another two vessels permanently joining the fleet in September which will add much-needed resilience to our fleet.

We really appreciate your patience and we will keep you updated as soon as we have a further update.
