What is Minimum Travel Time?

This is the time it would take to complete if you stayed on the bus through to completion and did not hop off. All passes can be completed in a shorter time by simply hopping off before the scheduled end point. We recommend hopping off as you travel to explore! Don’t forget- All passes have a maximum travel time of 365 days!

About this pass

Starting in Auckland, the Sheepdog winds its way down the North Island, cruises down the West Coast of the South Island then cuts back up to Christchurch.

Being a one-way pass it can be done in just 16 days in the summer which is great if you want to see a lot but don’t have a lot of time.

Don’t let that stop you though – if you have got more time you can hop-on, hop-off along the way and like all our New Zealand bus passes you’ve got 12 months to complete your trip.​
