Shuttle buses operate to and from all New Zealand international airports and most domestic airports.

With airport shuttles, you can be picked up or dropped off at your accommodation, or in the central business district of your destination. Many transport companies are flexible and can take you to a private address, if you’re staying with friends.

An airport shuttle is generally cheaper than taking a taxi if you’re on your own or travelling with just one other person. However you can expect a longer journey because the shuttle may make a number of stops along the way. When you book your shuttle ride, ensure that the company is aware of your check-in time. Journey times also depend on traffic conditions.
