The Waiheke Bus Service
There are several different trails that run along major arterial roadways with bus stops near most of the island's major towns. It extends to Onetangi Strand in the west and comprises the other northerly and Southern Rocky Bay & Te Whau Area's. A number of busses have bicycle stands on the front for a restricted number of standardbikes.
One good tip for visitors is the All Days Bus Pass, which allows you to take any number of trips a full working days for $10.00 per adulthood, $26.00 per host families or $6.00 per kid. Auckland Transport HOP map is also pre-installed to improve the fare. Passports are available at the box offices in Auckland or Waiheke and on ferry boats.
The coaches are designed for ferryboats that arrive and depart for Matiatia Wharf - please be aware that the bus lines and capacities differ depending on the season.
Arrival by bus via Waiheke Island
There are buses from Matiatia Wharf through Oneroa (adult/child $2/1, three minutes) to all major villages to Onetangi (adult/child $5.50/3, 35 minutes). Adults/children can buy a full menu ($10/6) at the Fullers desk at Matiatia Wharf. Auckland Transport can provide some midday service up to one hours apart to prevent long waiting times at bus stop.
The Waiheke Island Explorer Bus, a hop-on, hop-off bus that covers 15 different bus stations around the island, is another possibility. The tour is 90 min. long and the tour includes wine growing, beach, activity and restaurant sights.
Vineyards on the public bus line - Waiheke Island Forum
On February 28th we take a boat to Waiheke. We' d like to take the bus to the shore and also go to a vineyard. Anyone recommend a great place? The 4 pm shuttle must arrive at the latest since our sale of our ships at 6 pm and be back on the boat at 5.30 pm.
What if you take your bus to Oneroa first (1 km from the boat terminal). Get back on the bus and drive back to the Matiatia shipping station, but get off on the'Onetangi Straight' either to Stonyridge Vineyard or Wild on Waiheke. You can also remain a little longer in the bus to the Goldie Vineyard.
There is a bus stop for both former locations directly opposite the entrance, while the Goldie bus stop is about 150 metres from the entrance. I' ll take the Fullers trip and get off at Onetangi Beach. I' ll take the bus to Goldie and try it.
I' m getting back on the bus and taking the 4:00 p.m. boat back. I' m asking because it's nearer the shuttle on the way back. and Stonyridge is open for a personal event the very next morning. The thread has been discontinued due to apathy.
