Bus Services Disrupted Friday 4 February

Due to an official stop-work meeting by most of Stagecoach Auckland’s drivers this Friday, Stagecoach Auckland regrets to advise that most bus services between 9.30am and 2pm will be cancelled. The stop-work meeting is for drivers to consider a new three-year contract being offered by Stagecoach.

Whilst most services will not run, The Link and City Circuit services will operate as normal. On the North Shore routes 839, 858, 875 & 879 between Auckland City and East Coast Bays will run to their normal timetable, as will Route 895 between Auckland and Hibiscus Coast.

It is anticipated that school services will operate as normal as drivers are expected to be back at work by 2pm. The company apologises for any inconvenience this stop-work may cause. Customers can get more information by contacting Rideline on 366 6400
