Heritage buses will be back on the road over Easter weekend, providing public transport over the public holiday.

Otago Heritage Bus Society treasurer/secretary Jacqui Hellyer said Dunedinites could ride the buses, which serviced St Kilda, St Clair, the Octagon, Brockville, Halfway Bush and Normanby, for a gold coin donation on Good Friday and Easter Sunday.

The services would run hourly and the timetable would be available on the Otago Heritage Bus Society's Facebook page, Ms Hellyer said.

Passengers could take service dogs or pet dogs on a leash.

The St Kilda service had stayed like its former route - to Brockville then Halfway Bush - and the other services took the routes used on non-public holidays, she said.

The Otago Regional Council, in a statement published on its website, said there would be no bus services on Good Friday or Easter Sunday.

However, the standard Saturday timetable would apply on Saturday, and Easter Monday would run on the public holiday timetable.

Normal services would resume on Tuesday.
