Bay of Plenty

The Bay of Plenty region is widely spread with people commuting between Tauranga, Rotorua, Whakatane and everywhere in between.  Not to mention the number of people who commute to Hamilton or Taupo each day or even those travelling within their own town or city.  

Cash savings are the most tangible benefit – saving on fuel, parking, road user charges, and car maintenance. But sharing a car is also a great way to meet new people, make phone calls on the way to and from work, maybe read the paper, or catch up on some sleep! It also means fewer cars on the road – so less congestion and less pollution.

 Let’s Carpool is a free, secure service to help you find carpool matches. Bay of Plenty Regional Council can also help employers and tertiary institutions interested in setting up workplace carpool schemes.
