We are excited to launch a regional bus service for Cigna Round the Bays 2018, thanks to support from Pub Charity Limited.

We have organised special chartered buses with New Zealand Coachlines to assist in getting some participants from the outer Wellington suburbs to and from the event.

These buses are available for 6.5km event participants only, bookings are essential and numbers are limited.

Buses are available from the following locations;

  • Masterton (FULL)
  • Featherston (FULL)
  • Upper Hutt
  • Lower Hutt (FULL)
  • Johnsonville (FULL)
  • Porirua (FULL)
  • Kapiti

Each bus has a limit of 50 seats. Bookings are essential and are subject to availability – first in, first served!

6.5km event participants only. You must be registered for Cigna Round the Bays 2018 prior to booking this bus service.

We will have donation buckets on board for those who would like to make a donation to our event charity – Achilles New Zealand – in thanks for the service.


Booking a seat

Bookings are now closed.

Please note that all participants are still able to travel for FREE on event day with Go Wellington and Valley Flyer bus services.
