LATE night buses will ferry revellers to and from the city next weekend as White Night celebrations roll into Bendigo.

Extra coach and bus services will get people to and from Bendigo, with services to Melbourne and regional areas to bring people to the city.

Extra local buses will also be run to the normal timetable until 8pm. Starting from 6pm, five White Night bus routes will be running every half hour until 3am.

The routes will service Kangaroo Flat (via a direct service along High Street and another through Golden Square), Epsom, Strathdale and Eaglehawk.

Three park and ride locations will also be set up to connect to the bus services, at Bendigo Racecourse, Lansell Square and La Trobe University.

Public transport minister and Bendigo East MP Jacinta Allan said thousands of people are expected to flock to Bendigo for White Night.

Council is encouraging people to use the public transport available.

V/Line train services will run to the normal timetable on top of extra coach services running from Bendigo to Melbourne every hour from 11pm until 3am, stopping at major locations.
