Stop work meeting Friday disrupts Hamilton bus passengers

Stop work meeting Friday disrupts Hamilton bus passengers

Hamilton bus services will be disrupted between 9am and 1pm tomorrow (Friday, 26 July) due to a stop work meeting for bus drivers.

First Union members have given notice to Go Bus Transport that there will be a stop work meeting, scheduled for the off peak between 10am and 12pm to minimise the disruption to passengers.

Waikato Regional Council, which is responsible for managing bus service contracts in the region, has been working to find solutions for affected passengers.

At this stage, it’s expected the Orbiter, Comet and all regional services – 20 Cambridge, 21 Northern Connector, 22 Morrinsville/Paeroa, 23 Raglan and 24 Te Awamutu – will operate as normal.

All other Hamilton bus services will be affected between 9am and 1pm with many services not running.

Passengers are urged to either take the Orbiter or Comet when they can, take the first available bus, or travel before 9am or after 1pm.

People can check individual route information before travelling during the day by checking the BUSIT website, www.busit.co.nz, Facebook pagewww.facebook.com/BUSITWaikato, or calling the 24-hour bus infoline on 0800 205 305.

Last week, Australian PM Scott Morrison extended its ban on foreign visitors from or passing through from mainland China – including Chinese students - for a third week. New Zealand has dutifully followed suit, with our travel ban extending until next Monday at least, presumably dependent to some extent on what Morrison decides to do later this week.
Our universities are now asking for an exemption to the travel ban for their Chinese students, who would still, the universities assure us, be subjected to strict quarantine procedures upon arrival. Given how the inability of the university system to care for its own students on campus made world news last year, that promise may not do much to reduce the coronavirus fears among the wider New Zealand public.
