Hitching from Greenstone Road to Routeburn Shelter

Postby canthardlywait » Tue 05 Jan, 2016 3:21 pm

I'm after an alternative to catching and booking a bus from Greenstone rd to Routeburn Shelter next month. Is this a viable option? I know it's probably not a busy road but do you rate my chances of getting a lift?
Also I'm doing the Kepler track. I was planning on booking a bus there but just winging it on the way back to Queenstown. Thoughts?

Cheers

chances are very slim, kinlock have a shuttle, don't know if they cater for people not staying with them.

At $90 return it's a fair bit out of my budget. Are there any cheaper options?
