Manukau Superclinic Free Bus Service
Free Patient Bus services: There are two free bus services offered for patients to attend their appointments at Manukau SuperClinicTM/Manukau Surgery Centre. These bus services are run by volunteers between Monday and Friday (not including public holidays).
Both buses depart from Manukau SuperClinic, but follow different routes to and from the SuperClinic. One bus makes stops in Otara and Mangere and also has a stop at Middlemore Hospital, whilst the other bus follows a route through Manurewa, Papakura, Takanini and Clendon to the SuperClinic. Unfortunately no home pick ups or drop offs can be made for either service.
Both buses leave Manukau SuperClinic around 8am every week day (not including public holidays) picking up patients waiting at any of the specified stops and return to the SuperClinic around 9am. The buses then depart again and repeat their routes by departing and arriving hourly. The final run returns patients to their stops at 3:15pm and 4:15pm.
The timetables for both the free bus services can be found on Healthpoint's website at http://www.healthpoint.co.nz/default,3764.sm#downloads.
