IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE

  • The bus will only stop at Stray’s ‘main’ pick-up location unless a passenger has booked one of the alternative options. All alternative pick-ups must be finalised by 4:00 pm (weekdays) or 3:30 pm (weekends) before the day of travel.
  • Before you travel: Please double check your pick-up location by logging into Stray Mate and looking at your itinerary. If your itinerary says "Please Advise”, you can update this in Stray Mate up until 4:00 pm (weekdays) or 3:30 pm (weekends) the day before travel. Otherwise, make your way to Stray’s ‘main’ pick-up location.

  • Auckland Pick-up: The main pick-up for all Auckland departures (both Northbound and Southbound) is the Oakley Shop, 99 Queen Street. 
  • Remember to be waiting at your confirmed pick-up location at least 10 minutes beforehand to ensure you don't miss the bus.

HOW TO READ THE TIMETABLE

The timetables listed show all departures across the Stray Asia network from Bangkok, Thailand through to Hanoi, Vietnam. Unless you are travelling on the Lot Pass (which covers all those destinations), this means that you will only need a portion of the timetable.

The numbers on the left-hand side are the days according to the Lot Pass, assuming you don't hop off and spend longer anywhere.

The timetable with the new route dates shows when the new season changes will take effect across the entire Stray Asia network, starting from 1 October 2019 in Bangkok, Thailand. Given the size of the Stray Asia network, it will take a few weeks for the changes to filter through the entire route.

Each individual Pass Page also shows its current season itinerary on the Timetable Tab.
