A big thank you!

Tuesday 22 December 2020

It’s been a big year. There’s been a lot of change due to COVID, the Bee Card rollout and the $2 flat fare trial. We’d like to thank our Dunedin passengers and drivers for your patience and support, and we wish you and your whanau a relaxed, happy and safe holiday break.

There will be no Orbus buses operating on Christmas Day because our wonderful drivers will be having a well-deserved holiday. Our public holiday timetable will apply for 28 December and 4 January. You can find the timetable on the Otago Regional Council website or call us on 0800 474 082.

On Christmas Day there will be an hourly bus from St Clair via the Octagon to Normanby and return, thanks to the Suburban Rumbler run by the Otago Heritage Bus society. It departs on the hour from the St Clair terminus from 9:00 am until 6:00 pm, and from Normanby at 30 minutes past each hour from 9:30 am until 6:30 pm. It’s a gold coin donation for each trip.

Happy holidays from Orbus, and have fun exploring Dunedin by bus!
