Can I ask a question?

I was talking about transportation with a friend. He have to go to wellington this week to renew visa.  So I was asking him how to go there.

--->Which transportation will you choose?(When I came back to my room, this question made me confused)

Could you tell me about right answer?

1)How are getting to w / 2)How are you going to get to w.3) How are you going to go to w 4) ?

hai lina,
nice to know you,
i'm new here but i want to answer your question.
i choose no 2.  is it right?
well by the way i'm interesting about your country. ^^

Hello Lina,
I would probably choose number 2, 'How are you going to get to Wellington?' Number 3 is fine, but number 1 is missing the word 'you'.
Best wishes,
