There are a few ways to do this, with most options routing via Christchurch. It is possible to take an 8:30am bus from Christchurch to Greymouth with Atomic Travel. Our shuttle can then pick you up and transfer you to the trail start at Ross.
Air New Zealand fly to Hokitika from Christchurch. We can then transfer you to Ross.
Taking the TranzAlpine train from Christchurch to Greymouth often requires adding an extra day to the trip as the train arrives too late to start cycling from Ross that same day. It would be possible to start cycling from Greymouth, however, depending on your mode of transport getting home – car, train, bus, plane – an extra night accommodation may still be necessary.
If you are driving to the start of the trail, you could park at Greymouth or Hokitika and we can shuttle you from either town to start at Ross.
We suggest checking the current train, bus, or plane timetables on the transport providers actual website before making any travel plans as schedules are subject to change.
