    Hamilton residents will soon have a new way to get to work - on the Waikato River

    Hamilton residents will soon have a new way to get to work - on the Waikato River


    A six month trial of a ferry service starts later this month - from Pukete north of Te Rapa to central Hamilton.

    It's backed by the Hamilton City and Waikato Regional Councils.

    The owner of Waikato River Explorer, Darren Mills, says the service was always a long term plan but Covid-19 lockdown brought it forward.

    The service will leave Pukete at 7.30am and return from the CBD at 5.20pm.

    If the trial is successful, the service will be extended with more stops.
