best way to get to the Tongeriro Crossing from Taupo

HI,

I wanted to know what you guys think is the best way to travel to the tongariro crossing from Taupo. I Will have a rental car but I've heard that the shuttle from Taupo is better. And also i wanted to know if there's a better way to get there than the shuttle (a closer shuttle that i can drive to or something like that). I tried looking on line for an answer but couldn't find one.

I would think a "best/cheapest" alternative would be to drive to National Park village and pick up a shuttle there. Basically there are 2 ways of doing the shuttle - #1 shuttle to beginning + shuttle from end back to your car or #2 park your car at the end and get a shuttle to the beginning.

The advantage of the latter is that your car is ready when you arrive - change of clothes, snacks etc; however the downside is that there have been reports of break-ins at the trailheads.
