Distance and costing are for return journey starting and ending at Wellington Railway Station. Costs are total costs regardless of the number of passengers.
For example a car with 4 people (including driver) going to Makuri might have each passenger contribute $37.50 to the driver towards fuel and running costs.

These were orginally based on suggested TTC's trip transport calculations for indicative costs that could be shared.
They are based on a calculation of 33¢ per kilometre, rounded up to the nearest $10. They do not include additional distances to collect and drop off passengers at the start and end of a trip, or travel from accommodation to caves and back.
