Bus from Akaroa to Christchurch


I need a trip back to Christchurch from Akaroa, but all the companies I've found only offer round-trips.

Is there any official way to get from Akaroa to Christchurch?

I've never heard of a regular bus requiring a return journey. Intercity has a daily coach at 4:00 pm and their website doesn't mention return journey required.

You can take a 1 way with Akaroa Shuttle or French Connection. The price is 1 way-$25 with French Connection & $35 with Akaroa Shuttle. Email the Akaroa Visitor Centre akaroa@christchurchnz.com or phone them on 03 304 8600.

We are planning to use public transportation during out time in NZ. Would like to go to Akaroa and spend the night, and am trying to find transportation back to Christchurch in time to catch an 11:55am flight to Rotorura. We will be there in early October, and the Akaroa Shuttle and French Connection only offer one bus a day in the late afternoon. Any other possibilities? Thanks!
