Using public transport during Alert Level 3

A slightly aspirational post, but in the event that you are able actually access Public Transport – living, as you do, in our transport-bereft little corner of the region, Auckland Transport have issued details of how services will be operating:

Kia ora,

The Government has announced that New Zealand will be moving to Alert Level 3 on Tuesday 28 April. While some restrictions will be relaxed, many lockdown conditions remain in place. You should only travel or use public transport when your journey is absolutely essential.

While wearing of masks is not needed on public transport, we suggest that customers consider using them as an added precaution against the spread of COVID-19.

Under Alert Level 3, journeys on public transport will continue to be free, but you’ll still need to use a HOP card to tag on and off – this allows us to monitor demand and make adjustments to services if required. To make contact tracing easy if needed, we recommend you register your HOP card by visiting our website.

Trains and ferries will run to a reduced timetable. Buses will run to a near-normal timetable to provide enough capacity to allow two-metre physical distancing.

Plan ahead

If you do have to travel, visit our website and use the Journey Planner. For bus and train service updates in real-time, you can use the AT Mobile app.

The AT Mobile app now has a feature that indicates how many people are on a bus or train service at any given time. This lets you know if two-metre distancing is achievable before you board.

School buses

All Auckland Transport school buses will begin operating again from Wednesday 29 April. Buses will, however, have reduced capacity due to the need for physical distancing on board so we recommend that parents wait with their child(ren) at the bus stop until they can see if the bus has enough room on board for their child(ren).

Non-Acute Medical Cover In Puhoi During the Alert

Local Nurse, Amy Tolhopf as kindly offered the village her help during the lockdown. Please respect her position and try to limit your demands as much as possible, especially concerning direct contact – remote is best, on 0275164530!

Hi everyone, my name’s Amy, I’m a registered nurse with primary health care and acute care experience. I’m just letting you know I live locally and if for any reason throughout this period you are unable to attend a medical facility due to mobility issues, your home help for wound dressings and medication don’t arrive or we get to the point where you can’t access medical or emergency facilities (god help us if this happens) please feel free to contact me! I have oxygen and limited emergency supplies but they are available if needed. Take care, be kind and stay at home

Please just reiterate that if there is immediate life threatening concerns to call 111 I’m here as a backstop. If however there is medical concerns regarding day to day medical needs (carers not showing up). Or we are unable to access medical facilities I’m happy to go see them and triage them or do a dressing change, help with their medications as needed.


Happy to triage over the phone as I know healthline is very much overloaded. Or if your isolated, alone, concerned about someone else or just need a chat or guidance please don’t hesitate to call. Or send me a message if you have no minutes etc and I can call you back.
Take care everyone, we are very lucky to live in such a beautiful area to ride this out

Amy can be contacted on Facebook or by phone on 0275164530
