Intercity to TranzAlpine

Hello

I'm trying to find a bus/coach from Franz Glacier to Greymouth and catching then catching Transalpine train to Christchurch.

Currently I only find Intercity which reaches at 1:15 PM and train starts at 1:45 PM. Is the station close to intercity bus terminal. Is this 30 minutes enough to catch the train?

Any other bus which can make me reach earlier that day to have peace of mind?

Thanks

The bus is timed to meet the train and yes, the bus stops at the train station.

Naked Bus also travels that route some days of the week. Check your date to see if it will suit.

best of luck :)

As above, yes Intercity will arrive before the train departs. there are no services earlier in the day
