TransportTravelling from A to B with ease
While you’re studying in New Zealand, you may want to explore your local area or other parts of New Zealand. There are lots of transport options to take you there.
Depending on where you would like to go and your current location, your transport options include planes, ferries, buses, taxis, cars, bikes and of course, walking. Buses are the most common form of public transport around New Zealand and bus services are widely available.
If you would like to drive, you will need a valid driving licence as well as appropriate insurance, and you’ll need to check your vehicle is registered before you hit the road.
Alternative ways to travel are by cycling, but it’s important for you to understand the rules of the road, and to always wear a helmet. If riding a bicycle at night, you must have a front white light and a red rear light, as well as wearing reflective clothing.
Of course, you can also opt to fly between the major cities in New Zealand. Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch all have an airport.
