Free Bus Services for The Ford Ranger New Zealand Rural Games Weekend

Palmerston North, Feilding, and Ashhurst residents are in for a treat this year, as the 
Horizons Regional Council announces free bus services for the Ford Ranger New Zealand 
Rural Games weekend – Saturday, March 11 and Sunday, March 12, 2023. 
Getting to and from the Games will be easier for residents, thanks to Horizons providing its 
Palmerston NorthAshhurst and Feilding services free on the Rural Games weekend. 
Horizons chair Rachel Keedwell says Horizons is pleased to be able to provide their normal 
weekend services free of charge for both days of the Games. 

We would like to encourage the community to find out how easy it is to use the bus around the city. By taking public transport, you can help to reduce carbon emissions from private vehicles and you won’t have to worry about finding a car park.

“Horizons will have a stall at the Games, so stop by our tent to learn more about public
transport and the region’s waterways, pest plants and animals – if you visit us, you’ll also receive a native seed box.”

Weekend bus schedules can be found on the Horizons’ website, so residents can plan their
journey and make the most of the free services during the Rural Games weekend.

app which can be downloaded onto your Android or Apple devices.
