BUSIT to the Night Glow
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 Night Glow on postponed date Sunday 25 March, 2018. This year we’re delighted to bring you buses from The Base, and Hamilton East as well as all the usual locations. More buses will be running on the routes, so plan ahead and let us do the driving. FREE buses will run between 4.15pm and 7.00pm from the Park and Ride sites and special event bus stops along the routes. After the Night Glow has finished, buses will run on a continuous as-available basis until all passengers have boarded for their return journey.
For those of you visiting from Auckland and north of Hamilton, the best Park and Ride site for you is our northern most park situated at The Base. It’s easy to find and easy to get back on the road to Auckland.
For those of you arriving from South of Hamilton, either choose Melville High School, or may be easier to park in town and take our City Shuttle
Due to the postponement of the Zuru Nightglow, BUSIT Park and ride services will now operate on Sunday 25 March.
All five park and ride sites will be available but we are unable to provide as many buses. Please be aware that because of the limited number of buses it may take longer to get everybody home at the end of the event.
Please bear with us as we work hard to get you home as quickly as we can.
