"Well there are many ways to..." Bus Exchange Tip by stephikins

Bus Exchange, Christchurch: 5 reviews and 3 photos

Well there are many ways to get to and from Christchurch. If you are coming from overseas it will have to be by plane but once in New Zealand there are many options. If you don't mind long bus rides the bus trips are a great way to see New Zealand and also on day trips from Christchurch. Of course there is always national flights and for something different you could also try the train.
The best way to get around Christchurch if you don't hire a rental car is by bus. The bus exchange is now a focal point of the city and provides up to date information and a friendly service. Buses are frequent and reliable and a great way to see everything.
A new system has just been introduced for the buses on October 27th 2003 called the metro card. This card costs a minimum of NZD$10 and can be used on all buses. As an example a trip to and from the city to most places will cost only $1.90 using the card for less than 2 hours up to a maximum of $3.80 per day. If you don't have a card it will cost $2.50 per adult and $1.30 per child for 2 hours only. More information is available at the bus exchange on Lichfield Street.
