Getting Around

Metlink bus 200, operated by Tranzit Coachlines, heads from Masterton to Cartertown, Greytown and Featherston seven times on weekdays and three times on Saturdays. All of the Saturday buses continue on to Martinborough, but only one of the weekday services does. On weekdays a further five buses connect Martinborough to the train station at Featherston.

Beyond the main towns, you'll need your own vehicle; many of this area's notable sights are out on the coast and along rural roads. As is often the case, getting there is half the fun: the drive up over the ranges from Wellington is particularly scenic.
