I spent a while in New Zealand a few years ago and my friend and I took the Kiwi Experience bus around the country but if they had this back them we may have taken the naked bus around the country simply because of the name. Although its apparently just a catchy name to attract tourists it actually is really, really cheap.
They advertise rides for as low as $1 between a lot of points on both islands. The main difference between this and the Kiwi bus is that the Kiwi bus is way more expensive and additionally, you cannot ride the Kiwi bus just between two cities or stops. You could however, take a more expensive private bus around New Zealand. We did that if we didn’t want to stop in certain towns the Kiwi bus forces you to stop in. The naked bus is a nice alternative to have and I hope it takes off. In major tourist spots like New Zealand, it is nice that they are starting these nice cheap busses. Hopefully it will follow in the rest of the commonwealth like Australia, South Africa, India and who knows, maybe even in the UK.
