Red Bus

Part of our City

Welcome to Red Bus


Need to get to work or school but don’t like driving?  Carless?  No licence?  Put your feet up and let us do the work on a Red Bus!

Red Bus is a major Christchurch transport operator, owned by the people of Christchurch and very conscious of our responsibilities in getting our residents to work, school, and other engagements around and about our city and district.

Red Bus provides a high quality, environmentally-sustainable bus service, delivered on time by friendly drivers.

Options for transport include the standard suburban routes, for which you can view the timetables and maps here;  a commuter service for outlying districts from Darfield ; and our Akaroa Shuttle service which includes scenic tours.

If you need a bus or two for your events, check out our Charters page for more information.

Red Bus also operates the Christchurch Rebuild Tours replacing the Red Zone tours.  Book Here.
