Private Tram Hire

A great option for transferring guests or delegates from one location to another or to show them the central city sights, the private hire of trams is available for groups.

With options to move up to 200 people at one time over four trams, this product suits events of all sizes and allows easy access to popular event and dining destinations along the tram route including the Arts Centre’s Great Hall, The Terrace and Riverside Market, Botanic Gardens and the Art Gallery.

Drinks and Canapes Function

Treat your delegates or guests to a private one-hour tram ride while enjoying drinks and canapes and seeing central Christchurch. Our licensed trams can each carry up to 44 guests, and our premium catering partners offer quality menu options and local beverages. Our various boarding and disembarkation points mean we can transfer your guests along the circuit to your next inner city venue.

This is the perfect option for pre-dinner socialising in a unique way, and is ideal for conferences, corporate functions, special occasions, hens nights and more.

Delegate Tram Pass

Supply your delegates with a pass that enables them to enjoy the Christchurch Tram for the duration of their conference as part of their registration. The trams offer a great way to move delegates from central city hotels to various venues including Te Pae Christchurch, Christchurch Town Hall, Riverside Market, the Arts Centre and the Botanic Gardens as well as giving delegates the opportunity to explore the central city during their leisure time.
