CAR-FREE DAY COMMUTER TRAIN

CAR-FREE DAY COMMUTER TRAIN

By Danielle Cameron

Wednesday 22 September 2010

Waitati stopping all stations to Dunedin return

Depart 7.30am Waitati

Arrive 8.30am Dunedin

Depart Dunedin 5.45pm

Get The Train is chartering this train and fundraising to do so.  The
commuter trains have been wonderfully supported by the North Coast
communities and we feel it is really important to continue to have
these days to highlight the necessity of getting out of our cars and
to enjoy the ride into town on public transport.

These train rides have been running for two years now and are a real
celebration of community, of neighbourliness, of sustainability and of
public transport.  Our North
Coast schools are supporting this day by doing their best to organise
trips into town for some or all of their students.

Otago Community Trust have contributed $500 towards the cost of the
train and we thank them very much for their support.

Tickets on the train are $5 per person, in exact cash please.

Please tell everybody about the train and put the day in your diaries,

We will see you on the train for a commute to town, free of driving,
parking, frost, stress and with lots of wonderful people to catch up
with!
