Countdown to Metlink City Safari

  • Published Date 17 Apr 2015

Only four weeks to go until the region’s Amazing Race – the Metlink City Safari on Sunday 17 May.

The safari, made up of a six-hour challenge for the serious and a three-hour challenge for the not so serious, is an orienteering event with a big twist - you can use public transport to get you from point to point. The key to winning is strategy – teams decide which parts of the City are fastest to get to, and which mode of transport to use to get there, enabling them to visit as many checkpoints as possible before time runs out.

Spot-prizes will be awarded at selected checkpoints, and participants get the thrill of competition, a great dose of Sunday fun and exercise, and a chance to travel on types of transport and bus or train routes they don’t normally use.

The event is sponsored by Metlink and its partner agencies – TranzMetro, GO Wellington, Mana Coach Service, Newlands Coach Service, Airport Flyer, Valley Flyer, Wellington Cable Car, and East By West Ferry – which provide free transport to all participants on the day.

Sign up for the Metlink City Safari - get on board and have some fun!
