Wellington Bus and Coach
Public Transport in Wellington is efficient, reliable and affordable. The city is compact, and easily navigable by foot, anyway. Use the great buses, the scenic cable car, or the ferry across the harbour.
Wellington Public Transport is some of the best in the country. The main way of getting about is by bus. The primary network runs north to south, starting at the Railway Station, and taking in Lambton Quay, Willis Street, Mercer Street, Civic Square, Cuba Street, Manners Street and Courtenay Place. You can save money by buying a 'Snapper' travelcard, or a strip of 10-trip tickets. Buses also operate well out of the city, and are priced zonally. You can also jump a train to places like Johnsonville, Kapiti Coast, the Hutt Valley and Wairarapa. The main Railway Station is at Pipitea, on the harbour. For a real treat, ride the cable car (actually it's a tram) from Lambton Quay, up to the Botanic Gardens. There are also ferries which run across to Eastbourne from Queens Wharf.
