public transportation in Tauranga/Mount

If we didn't have a car while staying for 2 weeks could we get around by bus? Renting apt. probably in Feb. or March. Would we be better off staying In Tauranga, or the Mount, am not sure which to focus on. Would want a water view. Thanks,

That's one thing Tauranga & the Mount aren't short on, water views. The city sits on a huge inner harbour with many tidal estuaries that reach back inland so there are always views to be had. The Mount is on an isthmus with about 500 meter width between the lovely inner harbour at Pilot Bay on one side and the main ocean beach on the other. I suggest you base yourself at the Mount, great place to relax and walk, shop and eat. There is good public transport(buses) around the city on both sides of the harbour and back into the outer suburbs. Further afield you may need a car but you can do daily rentals from local companies.

Yeah, I am due to travel to Tauranga soon, and wondering where to stay, Tauranga vs Mt, for a month. I would like to go around by public transport rather than driving. Is Tauranga city centre far from Mount, good public transport going between? Is driving easy in Tauranga please?

Tauranga city centre is 5kms from down town the Mount and a 8-10minute drive. There is plenty of public transport from both areas. Driving is very easy with nice wide roads and a few expressways.
