BUSIT to the Nightglow

Image - BUSIT to the balloons

On this page: full route map, individual park and ride stops and locations

Take the hassle out of finding a park or stressing about the traffic – use Waikato Regional Council’s FREE Park and Ride services.

Five routes will run between key Hamilton locations and the University of Waikato for the Nightglow on Saturday, 28 March, 2015. Buses will run from 4.15pm and the last bus will depart the Park and Ride sites at 7pm.

Special Event

After the Nightglow has finished, buses will run on a continuous as-available basis until all passengers have boarded for their return journey.

Along with the Park and Ride sites, the buses will collect and drop passengers at specially marked event bus stops along the route.
