Public transport user guide
There's lots of information to help get you to your destination, but if you're new to public transport, it can seem overwhelming at first. This page is a beginner's guide to using public transport, along with tools to help get you where you want to go, and tips & etiquette to blend in with the locals. The Metlink Service Centre and on-board staff can point you in the right direction if you need help along the way.

Greater Wellington Region Council, under the brand name Metlink, brings a public bus, rail and ferry transport network to the wider Wellington region, including Wellington City, Hutt Valley, Porirua, Kāpiti Coast and the Wairarapa.
