World Car Free Day 2019

Sunday 22 September




Sun 22 September, 10:00-15:00


First Avenue, Tauranga (between Devonport Road and Cameron Road)

Come to the party!

Join us from 10am to 3pm on Sunday, 22 September for the internationally celebrated World Car Free Day, right here in Tauranga's CBD. We have a day of family-friendly activities lined-up for you, including:

  • Pop-up ice-skating rink
  • Giant games
  • Treasure hunt
  • Urban chill-out zone
  • Radio entertainment

Jump on your bike, walk or catch the bus and get down to First Avenue. Once you realise how enjoyable (and easy!) it is to travel to the CBD without your car, you might even be inspired to make the change more often.

The Bayhopper bus service throughout Tauranga will be FREE for the whole day on Sunday, 22 September, making it even easier for you to leave the car at home for the day.
