Public Transport

Orbus Queenstown
This bus service is a long-term joint investment by Otago Regional Council, Queenstown Lakes District Council and the New Zealand Transport Agency. It’s part of a wider coordinated plan between these three organisations and Queenstown Airport to address transportation troubles in the greater Queenstown area.

The new route from Arrowtown to Arthurs Point, via Quail Rise, Frankton, and Queenstown town centre, replaces the #8 Arthurs Point service and the #10 Arrowtown service. The route is more direct, via SH6A, and will no longer deviate into Lake Hayes Estate. It runs from 6.02am (outbound) to 10.54pm (inbound). The route will no longer be a ‘hail and ride’ service.

New stops are located at:

> Ramshaw Lane, on the river-side opposite the existing bus stop outside the Museum

> Centennial Avenue, both sides of the road by the Arrowtown Holiday Park

> Adamson Drive, opposite the existing stop at the Four Square

> Corner of Tucker Beach Road and SH6A Ladies-Mile Highway
