The Tauranga Mount Maunganui St John Health Shuttle will resume service in the area from Monday, January 17. 

The HS is a door-to-door community transport service provided by the Tauranga St John Area Committee.

“The HS service is available for most medical related appointments in the Tauranga/Mount Maunganui area, including: Tauranga Hospital; Park Street Eye Clinic: local doctors: dentists: and physiotherapists etc,” says a spokesperson for the HS team.

“Appointments from 9am to 2pm are best served – a donation for your journey is greatly appreciated by St John.”

Why choose the St John Health Shuttle?  

“HS clients have a range of reasons for choosing this community service, including: post-operative recovery (e.g. knee & hip replacements); physical disability; vehicle availability; the nature of the medical appointments (e.g. eyes); and driving confidence. 

“All three Health Shuttles have wheel chair hoists.

“You can be assured of a safe and secure journey, and a warm reception from our volunteer drivers.”

Great Service

St John provide a great service with Health Shuttle however it really annoys me to see them flying down the bus lane. They’re not entitled to and you and I would be ticketed for it. It doesn’t matter if they’re running behind time for an appointment - no excuse. They are not a bus. Keep up the great service St John but obey the road rules.
