Getting from Christchurch to Akaroa

Hello all,

Does anyone know of what different transportation options are available to get from Christchurch to Akaroa, as well as what the timetables are? I am looking to go between cities on a Thursday and was not sure what buses or other options there might be.

Thanks in advance for any advice, I really appreciate it!

Hi GV :)

There are a number of bus and shuttle options. You will need to check the websites for timetables. Do you know how to Google? - it is a very useful tool.

happy planning :)

Hi WanakaLakes, thanks for your feedback. Yes, I have Googled - I was able to find the InterCity line, but they only have one departing and returning time each day. I was wondering if there were any other options besides that. Might you have any suggestions or recommendations? Thanks again for responding!
