Tongariro Crossing Car Park provides the only secure car park and shuttle service for the Tongariro Crossing.

Park your vehicle in our monitored, safe and secure car park & join our local, knowledgeable drivers who share culturally significant stories on a short drive to the start of the crossing at Mangatepopo. 

Be aware that there are other operators that promise to pick you up from Ketetahi, but they require you to park on the side of the main highway, with zero security.

Our shuttles pick you up from our carpark every hour from 7am to 9am on weekends and weekdays and deliver you to the start of the track at Mangatepopo.

  • All our operators are fully vaccinated
  • We must sight your valid 'My Vaccine Pass' prior to your shuttle ride


  • Online bookings must be for a minimum of 2 people per booking. 
  • If you are a single person booking please call us 027 232-0238 or email: and we can manually book your car park and shuttle. 
  • Pickup times may vary during the season depending on prior booking numbers or forecasted adverse mountain weather conditions. 
  • Our carpark is locked at 7pm daily, so you must be back to your vehicle and have departed the car park by this time. 
  • Any vehicles locked-in after this time will need to contact and pay a $100 callout fee directly to Tiaki Security Ph: 027 815-2257, to be released.
