Dunedin Winter Carnival diversions

Valid from Friday, Jun 25, 2021 10:11 AM

❄✨This weekend is Dunedin’s annual Winter Carnival!✨❄

With some road closures around the festivities, some buses have to change their normal route for Saturday from 2pm- 9.30pm.

  • Stops at 138 & 151 Princes St will be closed, as buses will instead be travelling down via Queens Gardens to and from the bus hub.
  • Routes 37/38 may also have slight delays as these buses have slightly longer detours to take, but no bus stops are affected.

Stay warm on the bus this weekend – remember to scan in, and don’t forget the essentials: Hat, Gloves, Scarf, Mask 🧣🧤😷
