Tauranga school children could soon travel via bus for free following discussions at a Public Transport Committee meeting held on Friday night. 

The Bay of Plenty Public Transport Committee has recommended partnering with Tauranga City Council and NZTA to undertake further analysis on the idea.

The Bay of Plenty Regional Council says free fares would lessen the financial burden on the whānau of school students.
