There are three bus services that allow Victoria University students and staff to get directly to the Kelburn Campus. However, bus hubs at Courtenay Place and the Karori Tunnel provide quick transfer points from other services onto these three services. These transfers are at no extra cost as long as you use your Snapper card to tag on and off. Remember we have a Tertiary Concession providing a 25% discount on your Snapper card but you do need to apply.
