About Methven Travel

Providing excellent service in the Methven region since 1994.
Methven Travel was started in June 1994 with the concept of fulfilling a niche market in the Methven -Mt Hutt tourism industry.

A major decision was made in 1996 to operate a timetable service between Christchurch City / Airport and Methven. This has consolidated to a well known and respected service used by the majority of inbound tour operators and a vast number of free independent travellers.

In January 2003, we entered the School Bus service with 3 runs. Today Methven Travel travels over 1600km daily, carrying 600+ pupils on 14 different runs.

The Ski Buses were purchased from Leopard Coachlines in 2010 and added a new dimension to the company with clients being able to use one company for transport to/from Christchurch to Methven and Methven to Mt Hutt

Methven Travel now operates services – Methven - Christchurch – Methven: Mt Hutt Ski Bus, Charters and School Buses.

Methven Travel also do weddings, conferences (which can be based in Methven and Terrace Downs) and social functions! Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your options and how we can help.

It was formed as a family oriented company and remains so today.
