Is there any way to get to Raglan by bus or tour?

We are hoping not to have to rent a car so that we can just sit back and enjoy the scenery, but I'm having a hard time finding a way to see Raglan without this. I did find a tour with Stray that heads there, but then the tour also makes some stops that we don't want to see and would be tricky to fit into our timeline, so thought I'd try to customize our own!

Raglan seems to be the snag in all of this so if anyone has any suggestions that would be great!

Thank you!

There is a bus service from Hamilton to Raglan. If you Google "bus to Raglan" you will find some relevant information and options.

You don't have to go by coach - there are 3 buses a day run by EW as part of the regular Hamilton bus services:

It depends where you are coming from, to use public transport you would travel to Hamilton and then catch a connecting bus to Raglan. Buses depart weekdays from Hamilton transport centre at 8.30am, 3.40pm and 5.40pm and weekends at 10am and 3pm. if you need accommodation please visit the info centre at 2 Wainui Road or email to raglaninfo@xtra.co.nz for help.

Thanks for the replies - we actually decided it would be easier to rent a car to get there (and also allow for more time at the beach than waiting for buses!) Looking forward to it!
