Transportation to Christchurch.

If this is your first time visiting Christchurch, then it’s recommended to have an airport service with a chauffeur pick you up from the airport. If you don’t have this arranged, then rest assured that there are other options to get into the city, namely:

  • By taxi – Taking a taxi to Christchurch is a viable option if you are travelling with less than three more passengers, to ensure that all your luggage can fit as well.
  • By Bus The regular Metro Bus Service runs from the airport to downtown Christchurch, just grab line 29 and you can buy the ticket from the driver. There are also other bus lines departing from the airport bringing you to the other parts of Christchurch.
  • By shuttle bus If you schedule your trip ahead of time, then you have the chance to buy a ticket for a shuttle bus to the front door of your hotel. Using a shuttle bus is a quick way to get to your location.
  • By rental car If you rather want to travel in your own pace, you can also rent a car. There are more than five different operators in the airport, ensuring you that there is always a car for you, and with the The Airport Hopper you get transported from the airport to the car park for free.
