Shuttle Services & Transport


A Day Out in Town Bus Service

The Day Out In Town Bus Service provides low-cost travel between Levin, Waitarere Beach, Foxton, Foxton Beach and Shannon every Friday. This is thanks to funding from the New Zealand Lotteries Commission, the Infinity Foundation and Pub Charity. With our townships sitting far out of walking distance from each other, the Day Out In Town Bus Service offers people an opportunity to come in to Levin on a Friday, to do some shopping, visit the bank, go to centrally located service providers (eg access healthcare, WINZ, social services in general) or even just visit friends and enjoy lunch during a Friday concert at our fabulous community centre Te Takere. Alternatively, people can use the service to go from Levin to Shannon for an afternoon, or to visit the beach this summer.You can access the Day Out in Town Bus Service Timetable below.
