There's a proposal to get tourists to Milford Sound on electric buses.
The Milford Opportunities Project proposes charging overseas visitors for access permits - but not New Zealanders - on the route between Te Anau and Milford Sound.
It also wants the local airport closed and restrictions on cruise ships.
Milford Opportunities Governance Group chairman Keith Turner told Mike Hosking visitors think the drive in, is the most fantastic experience so there should be a park-and-ride at Te Anau.
“Zero carbon buses allows people to hop off, have as much time at the places along the road as they want.”
