Getting There & Away
Masterton is the terminus of the Wairarapa Line, receiving six Metlink trains on weekdays (two on weekends) from Wellington ($18, 1¾ hours) via Featherston ($5.50, 36 minutes) and Carterton ($3.50, 15 minutes).
Metlink bus 200, operated by Tranzit Coachlines, heads to Greytown ($5, 30 minutes) and Featherston ($3.50, 50 minutes) seven times on weekdays and three times on Saturdays. All of the Saturday buses continue on to Martinborough ($8, 1¼ hours), but only one of the weekday services does.
Tranzit also runs the InterCity service to Palmerston North ($21, two hours) five days a week (no Monday or Saturday buses but two on Friday).
