Residents encouraged to take public transport to White Night

The City of Greater Bendigo is encouraging residents planning to attend the city’s first ever White Night to plan ahead and take public transport instead of driving.

Mayor Cr Margaret O’Rourke said White Night was shaping up to be a fantastic event for local residents and visitors to Bendigo.

“We are so excited about hosting White Night for the first time, and planning is well advanced to ensure everything runs smoothly and efficiently,” Cr O’Rourke said.

“There will be a road closure from 4pm on Saturday, which will restrict people’s ability to drive into and around the immediate event precinct.

“We are expecting large crowds for this event so we are urging residents to consider taking public transport, Bendigo Tramways or even a taxi, as parking will be at a premium on the night.

“The busiest times are expected to be from 8pm to 11pm.

“There are lots of great options including the Park and Rides which are free and will operate continuously from three locations (Bendigo Racecourse, Lansell Square and La Trobe University in Flora Hill) throughout the night.

“The best way to enjoy your White Night experience and avoid any parking headaches is to plan ahead.

“Go to the White Night Bendigo website for all the details on what’s happening where and when.

“It’s going to be a fantastic event with something for everyone to enjoy.”
