Experience the Tongariro Alpine Crossing the Tongariro Expeditions way with our Ketetahi Park N Ride Shuttle Service. We offer discounted options for seniors, students and children, and when you book for groups of 10 or more.
This service is when you drive your car to the finishing point of the Tongariro Alpine Crossing at Ketetahi first thing in the morning—no need to arrange transport from your accommodation! Travel in the comfort of your own vehicle, enjoying your coffee or breakfast on the way if you wish. Once you’ve arrived at Ketetahi, our bus will pick you up from SH46 and take you to the track's starting point.
There is ample space for parking at Ketetahi—the endpoint of the track. Vehicles can park all day on the side of State Highway 46 for free, offering plenty of space for our Park N Ride customers—just avoid any areas with ‘no parking’ signs!
Our bus will drop you off at the start point at the Mangatepopo carpark. With Park N Ride, you have the flexibility to complete the trek at your own pace, with no need to work to a fixed schedule in order to meet return transport. Enjoy a more leisurely walk, soak up the scenery, take plenty of pictures and stop for refreshments!
After many hours of hiking, you’ll be pleased to find your own familiar and comfortable vehicle waiting for you at the other end. Depart in your own time, with no need to wait for another bus or shuttle to collect you and drop you at your accommodation. Debrief with your companion, hit the nearest drive-through, wind down by listening to some music or start planning your next adventure!
