Over 100 children from isolated rural school communities in South Wairarapa were transported free of charge by Tranzit into the township of Featherston so they could spend book vouchers, which were donated to them by Friends of Featherston Booktown. This annual event is a festival that Tranzit has supported for several years. Mary Biggs, Operations Manager for Featherston Booktown, said for some children it was the first time they had had their own “money” to spend on choosing a book they really wanted to read.
