Strike Action having minimal impact on bus services
Strike Action having minimal impact on bus services at this time
Strike action by some bus drivers is currently having minimal impact only on bus services in Wellington City and the Hutt Valley. 98 percent of scheduled trips are operating.
There have been some cancellations in the Hutt Valley particularly on the 110 route from Upper Hutt, and on the 160 and 170 routes from Wainuiomata. However, services are still running on these routes and others in the Hutt Valley.
Bus services in Porirua are currently unaffected by the strike action, and fewer than five services have been cancelled in Wellington City.
School services have not been affected by the strike action, and the operator is prioritising all other routes taken by school children.
Metlink regrets the impact and uncertainty the industrial action by some members of the Tramways Union is having on our bus customers and will keep people informed as the situation develops.
The advice continues to be “check before you travel”. Travellers can check the Metlink website or the Metlink Commuter app for the latest information or call the Metlink team on 0800 801 700.
