Future of Metlink On Demand to be decided by Greater Wellington 

Metlink On Demand

The next steps for Metlink’s ‘On Demand’ public transport trial will be decided at a Greater Wellington Transport Committee meeting on 22 June.  

Metlink On Demand is a flexible, shared transport solution that has been trialling in Tawa and Grenada North since May 2022. Passengers use an app to request pick up and drop off at locations across the suburbs. To date the service has been well received by the community with 40,000+ trips and overall customer satisfaction measured at 96%.  

Regional councillors will also hear an update on public transport staff shortages and how recruitment efforts are anticipated to impact services, as well as a report from Wellington Harbour Ferries operator East By West. Plans to roll out a team of warranted Transport Officers will also be tabled. 

Media are welcome to attend the Transport Committee meeting online(external link) or in person. 

  • 9:30 AM Thursday 22 June
  • Council Chamber, 100 Cuba St, Te Aro, Wellington
