Tongariro Alpine Crossing Shuttle One Way Service, operated by National Park Shuttles
National Park Shuttles
The one way service is operated by National Park Shuttles. This is ideal for those passing through the area. Our shuttles depart each morning for maximum flexibility at 7am, 8am and 9am.
Your pick up point for the transfer to Mangatepopo departs from inside the secure car park, on the other side of SH 46. The entry into this car park is ~ 400 metres past/or before the Ketetahi road entry. The secure car parking is included in your ticket when you purchase a shuttle ticket online.
Please note there is a 4 hour restriction to park your car at Ketetahi road end.
We are local to the Crossing area, so we monitor the weather closely and take advantage when it is better than expected. We do not cancel due to weather until the day itself.
There is plenty of car parking at the secure car park. The other option is our return shuttle from National Park Village: we pick you up in the morning from your chosen location and deliver you back to your car/accommodation in the afternoon.
See the shuttle timetable for departure times.
