The Waiheke Bus Company operates on the tiny island of Whaiheke which is about 30 minutes from Auckland Harbour by Fuller's ferry. The island bus services are geared around the ferry times, particularly as the island harbour is a fair walk from the first settlement, Onetangi. The buses bear Fuller's livery, and Fuller's is owned by Stagecoach, but the red, blue and yellow stripes had yet to be replaced by Satgecoach stripes when these pictures were taken at Easter 2000.
Waiheke Bus Company Bedford climbing from Palm Cove The main bus route operates along the northern side of the island and the mainstay of the bus fleet are dual-door bodied Bedfords. One can be seen making the steep climb up from Palm Cove, which is a double-run on the route.
