Bus Passes

New Zealand's is world-renowned for its extreme scenic beauty, remote destinations and adventure activities and Stray is your ticket to see it all! 

Stray is New Zealand's award-winning, guided bus network for adventurous travellers and our mission is to get you further off the beaten track in New Zealand, taking you to the places and activities that will blow you away. We stop along the way to show you everything we love about our country, from wildlife to beautiful views, short walks and waterfalls.

Our guided hop-on hop-off bus passes give you great flexibility - jump off to explore anywhere along the route, then jump back on the bus at a later date.

All passes are valid for 12 months from the first date of travel.
