Community support

We love hearing about the many community-led projects and events that are making New Zealand a better place in which to live, work and learn.

If you’re a community group, we’re keen to talk to you about:

  • taking part in your community event or project
  • helping you raise funds by donating vouchers for travel on one of our four Great Journeys of New Zealand

We give priority to activities taking place in communities located along the rail corridor, or relevant to our business. You can read more on our Community page.

Wahine 50th anniversary
