With a great response and support from the local community for operating the St. Clair – Normanby service for the past 2 years, the Otago Heritage Bus Society are running this successful service once again this Easter weekend, on Good Friday and Easter Sunday, and this time, passengers’ dogs will be welcomed on to the buses.
“A few passengers were invited to bring their dogs on our Christmas service,” Philip Riley, chairman of the society said. “They and their dogs were well behaved and left no mess, creating a happy and friendly atmosphere on board.”
The weekend will also see the resurrection of bus services to three more suburbs not been served on these holidays for many decades: St Kilda, Brockville and Halfway Bush. With the additional route we have named our public transport revival days the Suburban Rumbler.
“On three days each year, Dunedin is not covered by the Otago Regional Council’s integrated network of Gobus services. We have a passion for public transport, and we want to serve the widest possible portion of Dunedin’s community since we now have more than one operational bus,” Philip said.
“We are keen to work alongside some local attractions and businesses along each of the routes,” said Andrew Robinson, Society Operations Manager. “One Dunedin attraction on the St. Kilda – Brockville / Halfway Bush route is the Chancarla Farm Park in Halfway Bush. Passengers will have a chance to visit this unique Dunedin attraction on both Good Friday and Easter Sunday.”
The Brockville-Halfway Bush route will also serve the Dunedin Dog Park at the corner of Wakari Rd and Taieri Rd.
Proceeds from the Suburban Rumbler services will go back into restorations and operations of the Otago Heritage Bus Society to further benefit the community, including bringing Dunedin’s first trolleybus back to the city and restoration work on two Dunedin-built earlier-model Leyland Leopards. Our Mount Cook Denning long distance coach will also be on display in the Octagon both days during the Easter Weekend.
