Queenstown to fox glacier transportation options

I have a flight arriving in Queenstown around 11 am. I am trying to meet friends that will already be in Fox Glacier. It looks like the shuttle bus only leaves at 8am. Are there any other transportation options other than rental car?

Welcome to the forum :)

And sorry, but the answer is no. The bus takes about 7 to 8 hours and there is no afternoon service I know of. But surely you will want to see something of Queenstown anyway? You can sightsee on arrival and catch up your friends the following day.

Travel the next day. It is a holiday, so it gives you a chance to look around queenstown, then travel to Fox.
