The TranzAlpine will only stop at Otira if passengers are scheduled to board or alight there. If you wish to catch the TranzAlpine from Otira then we recommend you book your tickets in advance.
Passengers who are booked should arrive at least 20 minutes prior to scheduled departure and wait at the centre of the platform. When the train arrives, we will greet you on the platform and check you in. Please do not board until you have been given your boarding pass and seat number.
