Reduced Metlink services over Christmas

Metlink – Greater Wellington’s public transport network - will operate a reduced service over the Christmas break but travel is free on all services on Christmas day, announces Greater Wellington Regional Council.

Normal services will operate on Christmas Eve, Saturday 24 December. Most Metlink bus, train and ferry services will be back to normal on Sunday 8 January 2005. However, Stagecoach Wellington bus services, Cityline’s bus route 145 (Lower Hutt to Belmont) and Johnsonville and Melling train line services will not revert to their normal timetables until 15 January 2006.

All Metlink services will be free on Christmas Day. Leaflets about the Christmas holiday services will be available from timetable stockists, which includes libraries and information centres, from Monday 12 December and the Metlink Service Centre.

The After Midnight bus service will operate on the nights of Friday 23 (not on Christmas Eve), Friday 30 and Saturday 31 December and Friday 6 and Saturday 7 January. Buses operate from midnight until 3am - and on some services until 4am. Services start from Courtenay Place and Cuba Street going to most Wellington suburbs, as well as from Lower and Upper Hutt and Porirua.

For more information call Metlink – Greater Wellington’s public transport network – on 0800 801 700 or go to www.metlink.org.nz.
