Choice is a free app initiated by NZTA to offer people a range of transportation options within Queenstown all in one place. The app combines a comprehensive range of transport possibilities from buses, shuttles, taxis, ride-sharing services to boats.
Choice is a transformative means of engaging mobility services in the 21st century. The first of its kind in New Zealand, the app seeks to revolutionise the way people deliberate getting from A to B. It allows individuals the ability to review all their transport options with ease before booking. The Choice app provides individuals with estimates of what their transport options will cost in money & in time.
Choice is fully available on both the Android and Apple store to view, compare, and book your chosen method of transport. The app is currently in its pilot phase, meaning new features and transport providers are rapidly being added.
