12 July 2017

Tauranga's luminous celebration returns for 2017 with the second edition of Winter Nights Winter Lights on Friday 14th and Saturday 15th of July. 

This year Bay of Plenty Regional Council have come on board to help out with extended operating hours on most Bayhopper bus routes.  

Public Transport Committee Chairman Lyall Thurston sees the late buses as a great opportunity to get behind a community event and to showcase Tauranga’s bus service to new users.

“We’re thrilled to support Tauranga City Council’s Winter Nights Winter Lights event by extending our Bayhopper operating hours for Friday and Saturday and we hope to see lots of families and groups of friends make the most of the later services,” said Mr Thurston. 

The regular weekend and public holiday timetable resumes on Sunday 16th July.
