Bus route changes: frequency & destination change for route 28 replacement

Two new bus routes will begin operating in Christchurch from Monday 4 September. At that time the current routes 17 and 28 will cease operation and be replaced by new routes 8 and 27. In the Papanui area, the number 27 will follow the same route as the old number 28, but at a higher frequency (20 minutes on weekdays until 6pm), and south of the bus exchange the service will head to Huntsbury rather than the number 28’s destination of Lyttelton.
