The "Sherpa Shuttle" service is your Cycle Trail's dedicated logistics and transport management system.
The Sherpa Shuttle System is gauranteed to get you, your bike, your luggage and even your vehicle at the right place and at the right time every time.
- We will shift your bags every day to arrive at your next nights accommodation before you do.
- Self catering? We will move your food for you each day in chilly bins.
- Sherpa will get you and/or your bike back to your vehicle after your ride or help you position your vehicle so it is waiting for you when you get off the trail at the end of your visit.
- You, your bike and your luggage are assigned unique bar codes that are scanned to track your transport needs everyday as you move along the trail ensuring a reliable and prompt service.
If you are doing a West Coast Rail Trail "Supported Cycle Package" on this site then the Sherpa Shuttle Service is automatically included in your package and you do not need to organise this seperately, it is taken care of for you.
Not on a package? That's OK. If you just want a bag moved or a pickup when you come off the trail then the Sherpa can do that for you too. But you'll need to book the service you want as Transport only runs if booked in advance.
