A taxi will cost between $20-$25 to reach us.
Unfortunately Nelson doesn't have a bus service that runs to the airport, however there is a service called 'Super Shuttle' that exists. It is cheaper than a taxi!!!
The intercity bus terminal is a 10 minute walk and is located on Bridge St.
To reach us from there one need only walk 3 blocks down Bridge St, turn right onto Tasman St and we are on the corner of Tasman and Nile another 3 blocks South.
