Wanaka Primary Walking School Bus Features on National TV

This morning Tamati from TV1 Breakfast came to town. He is currently on a tiki tour of New Zealand visiting various towns who are making the effort to get as many cars off the road as possible.

They found Wanaride Share on the Internet and it just snowballed from there. Sophie Ward, the general manager of Sustainable Wanaka did a fantastic job of rounding up all the cool folks in town who use alternative methods of transport to get to and from work and just travel about, we even had a horse or two.

The walking school bus turned up just in time for his final live slot and the ywere fabulous. So many happy smiling faces. Being on national telelvision is a pretty cool way to start the day. Well done to Kath and all the other adult helpers who do a marvelous job of keeping this great initiative going.

You can watch the whole of Tamati's special report on the TV1 website.
