FOUR-DAY "Park 'n Ride" tram tickets are going on sale as the CBD prepares for bumper crowds of 80,000 people.
Higher numbers are expected this year as the city prepares to welcome new imperial dragon Dai Gum Loong, who will replace an ageing Sun Loong created in 1969.
The discounted tickets would be valid from Good Friday April 19 to Easter Monday April 22 and could also be used for the shuttle tram service operating during the Bendigo Advertiser Gala Parade on Easter Sunday April 21 between 9.20am to 2.40pm.
Parking would be available at Central Deborah Gold Mine, the Bendigo Joss House Temple and Lake Weeroona and passengers could use their tickets to hop on and off the trams throughout the Easter festival.
Tickets cost $28 per family (2 adults and up to 4 children), $12 per adult (no concession) and $6 per child over 4 years old.
The Easter Sunday shuttle trams would run every 20 minutes from 9.10am to 5pm between Central Deborah Goldmine and the Cenotaph and from the Joss House Temple to Chapel Street.
Those without four-day tickets could spend $3 per trip. For more information and tickets, visit: www.bendigotramways.com
