Senior citizens living in the Blueskin Bay area get the best deal in
greater Dunedin with the new free off-peak bus travel scheme which
started yesterday (Wednesday 1 October). Passengers with over-65ers'
or veterans' Super Gold Cards and Otago Regional Council Go Cards (you
need to carry both) can fit in a three-hour morning in Palmerston,
where they could enjoy the famous pies, the shopping (they have TWO
4-Square supermarkets!), a cool drink at the railway station bar and a
visit to the butterflies, all at zero transport cost. The Palmerston
Minibus Services bus leaves every weekday just after 9am from Waitati
and Evansdale and comes back at lunch time.
