SHUTTLE TO TREBLE CONE

The Express sHUTTLE FROM QUEENSTOWN direct TO TREBLE CONE  has closed for the season

New for 2017, in partnership with Go Bus and IceBreaker, we will be operating a daily Queenstown Express Shuttle bus.
Running daily, the difference with our new service is that we will pick up in one spot in Queenstown and then once more on route in Frankton. This shuttle service then heads straight over to the snowy peaks of TC. Taking a total time of around 90 to 120 minutes (depending on road conditions and traffic), this is a convenient, fast way to get to and from Treble Cone. The QT Express Shuttle leaves the mountain at 4pm to return to Queenstown.

Dates: This service runs until 3 September.
Departure time: 7.15am from out side the Queenstown isite with a collection at the Frankton bus shelter.

Please be at the Queenstown isite by 7am to allow for the time it takes to load the bus.
