Ride to win

Our brand new competition 'Ride to Win' started in November 2021, and it’s all about rewarding you, our loyal customers. Each month until the end of summer, we will draw a winner from each bus and ferry route. The winner will receive 1 month’s free travel. There are 29 different routes, so that’s 29 chances to win!

It's our way of saying 'thank you'.

Driving is the single largest contributor to Christchurch’s carbon emissions, so every bus trip you take directly helps our environment. Not only this, but your efforts help to reduce congestion on our roads and creates cleaner air, benefiting everyone in our city. Every ride you take you are making a difference.

So thank you, Christchurch, from the team at Metro.
