The Harkerss, bus service for us has been nothing short of fantastic. Never have they been late or provided the wrong size vehicle. The bus always arrives with a 'cheery' driver.

Harkerss transports age group teams around the South Island and national league sides from the airport to English Park for us, including visting teams. Bringing travelling sides to our city with that sort of friendly welcome has added real value to our francise.

Harkerss have been our preferred provider for over two years and we look forward to this relationship continuing.
