There are numerous transportation options within Christchurch CBD.
Christchurch is an incredibly walkable city. The main CBD area has a very flat terrain, and there are all varieties of street art, eateries and shopping to be discovered along the way. Exploring on foot also means there is no need to navigate through roadworks and road closures, of which there are plenty given the massive post-earthquake rebuild effort.
Christchurch is a city of renewal and this forward thinking has made cycling an integral part of its public transport system. Consider signing up for a bike-sharing service where you can share a bike for as little as $4/h . Check out the Christchurch city council website for cycle maps or the Transport for Christchurch website.
All the major car rental and campervan companies (Avis, Budget, Hertz, Europcar, Ezi, Hertz, Thrifty) are located inside the International Arrivals Hall, near the domestic baggage reclaim and provide vehicles on pre-booked or walk-up basis.

It is advisable that you pre-book a taxi service, particularly if you need to be somewhere by a particular time.
Uber is widely used in Christchurch, and is definitely our personal preference. Much cheaper than taxis and the opportunity to review drivers often results in a better quality service. Make sure to download the app and have it operational before you need to use it.
Electric scooters have been a very popular and handy means to explore downtown Christchurch for a while now, as it is flat and has enough bike lanes for safe navigating around. There are three different scooter services to choose from at the moment: Lime, Beam and Flamingo. As long as you download the right app and get yourself connected, you can cruise around town with ease (and care!)
