Nakedbus is another NZ long distance bus company with about a 35% market share. Not liking how expensive
it was to travel in New Zealand, founder Hamish Nuttall decided to shake things up a bit when he saw how low cost airlines in
Europe revolutionised that industry. Voila, Nakedbus was born to revolutionse New Zealand's bus travel.
Nakedbus promises - low cost, safety, comfort, reliability and friendly service. They have perfected the art of 'stripping the cost of travel'.
Nakedbus was, to my knowledge, one of the first bus companies in NZ to introduce the $1 fares on long distance bus travel. Other providers had to respond in kind which is good for us, the travellers.
They pass through 320 towns and cities once or twice a day throughout New Zealand. The only day they don't run is Christmas Day. I can't blame them. Who wants to travel on Christmas Day anyway?
First in gets the cheapest deal with Nakedbus as the cheap seats are sold first. Their system always offers the best fare available at the time so if you look now and go back 5mins later to find the price has gone up, well, sorry, somebody beat you to it.
