The Splore Express bus is simple, sustainable and safe.
Catching the Splore Express bus is by far the best way to get to Splore. You’ll be making a positive impact on the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and reaping the benefits of not bringing another car to Tapapakanga.
We want as many people as possible to travel by bus which is why we have subsidised the price so you can get a ride for as little cost as possible.
Splore Express Bus ticket prices start at just $5+BF each way for early birds. When these sell out the price will rise to $10+BF each way. There’s loads of cheap seats but make sure to book yours before they go.
Buses will depart from Downtown Auckland, 172 Quay Street, Opposite the Ferry Terminal, at 9am and 1:30pm on Friday the 19th February. Arriving at Splore Camp HQ approximately 1 hour later.
Your Splore ticket and wristband processing will happen on board so there’ll be no waiting in queues at the front gate. The Splore Express will take you directly to the campgrounds where you can simply unload and get going into the festival.
There is plenty of of space for all your gear down in the cargo hold so don’t worry about about that.
Traveling home on the bus has the great advantage of allowing you to fully take part in the merry festivities of the last day of the event and letting the bus driver worry about the driving. Have a couple of drinks for the road. No worries.
Local police will be cracking down on drivers under the influence, there likely be will be some kind of monitoring after and the event. Why risk it when you can hop on a bus back to town. Safe sustainable, convenient and cheap. Return busses will depart from Tapapakanga at 4pm & 6pm on Sunday 21 February.
