CREST is managed by a Board of Trustees of up to seven people some of whom may also be volunteers who help run Bluebell and the Shuttle Bug.

We have a small but keen team of volunteers and the more we have the better service we can give. Volunteers assist for different periods of their choice, from a couple of hours a fortnight to a day or more a week . We also need replacements for team members who are away.

We have about four drivers or driver/commentators. Also there are some valuable support people who help with ticketing, assisting passengers, giving commentaries  or helping with maintenance. We welcome people to join our team of volunteers and we give full training and support. 


See below for more details and application forms. You can also chat to one of our drivers when we are operating and go for a ride.


CREST looks for mature people as  new volunteers who are interested in a medium to longer term commitment. We provide full training. We can use people with different interests; driving , ticket selling and helping passengers, giving commentaries, maintaining vehicles. We work with you to arrange suitable volunteer times. You will meet a wide variety of people and help provide an enjoyable and interesting service which raises money for children's charity.

We also need suitable people for our committee which meets monthly.

CREST is a Dunedin charitable trust which raises funds for needy local children by operating rides at the Dunedin Botanic Garden.

CREST keeps its ticket prices affordable so that everyone can enjoy a ride. However running, compliance and insurance costs have climbed. Our team of volunteers work hard to make a profit to pass on to needy children so any extra contributions are a welcome boost.  

Some passengers like to include a small donation when buying their tickets. Receipts can be given for larger amounts. Each donation is very much appreciated.
