See how it worked last year
The park and ride Magic Bus will run from Byron Regional Sport and Cultural Complex on Ewingsdale Road into town from December 29 to January 4.
All-day parking will be available at the complex for $5 per car.
Mayor Simon Richardson, says the famous bus will travel via a dedicated bus lane into town, and ‘residents can be part of a solution to a well- known [traffic] problem.’
Additionally, a free shuttle will have two bus services each hour and operate between 10am and 8pm and up until 10pm on NYE.
‘We had more than 6,000 park and ride patrons last year and the feedback was very supportive,’ he says. ‘Each year, Council is aiming to build on the uptake. It’s fun, fast, and sure beats the pain out of sitting in traffic and then circling town trying to find a car park.’
Special Parking Areas
And like last year, a Special Event Parking Area (SEPA) will be in place during the same time.
Time limits will apply for Belongil and Wategos and the streets west, east and within the town centre.
‘Most streets in the SEPA area are residential, where no time limit is signed; however, during SEPA, a 2P time limit will apply for each 24-hour period. If you live within the area, exemption parking permits will be available to residents (and their guests), workers and accommodation providers.’
Collect your SEPA permit from the Mullumbimby Council office until 24 December, or the Byron Regional Sport and Cultural Complex until December 23 and from December 29 to January 4.
