Hop-On Hop-Off Departure Times

Once you have booked your Stray pass, you will receive a log in for our online booking system, Stray Mate

You can use Stray Mate to book your travel dates and confirm the departure time for all pickup locations. Remember to be waiting at your confirmed pickup location at least 10 minutes before to ensure you don't miss the bus. 

IMPORTANT STUFF! The bus will not stop at every listed pickup location unless you have confirmed your pickup. You can double check this by logging into the online booking system and looking at your itinerary. If you notice "Pick Up TBA" beside the day - please call or email the reservations team.
