Transport & Shuttle Services

Otago Central Rail Trail, Roxburgh Gorge & Clutha Gold Trails

We have a number of transfer and shuttle options to help facilitate your cycling holiday on all the trails we support. These should be booked in advance, but if there is space on a bus, 24 hours notice is adequate. 

Although there is a minimum of two passengers, if there is a scheduled bus, solo travellers can be included.  

Likewise if your group is large enough, we may be able to provide a charter run at a time other than our scheduled runs. 

Starting at $50.00 per person, we have a sliding scale for pricing on the Clyde to Queenstown, Middlemarch, Dunedin and Lawrence services, and different prices for sectors on the Lawrence and Middlemarch shuttles. 

Talk to our consultants to clarify these.

Three times a day there is a door-to-door transfer service to and from Queenstown and the airport. Clients can either start their cycling upon arrival at our depot, or be taken to their accommodation in Clyde or Alexandra. 

  • Departs Queenstown    7:45am   
  • Departs Clyde               2:30pm
  • Departs Clyde               5:00pm

Our recommendation is to arrive the day prior to cycling, get fitted on your bike, enjoy some terrific local hospitality, and start your ride at your leisure the next morning. 



Twice a day there is a door-to-door transfer service to and from Dunedin and Middlemarch including the airport.

  • Departs Dunedin                 8:00am
