Greater Wellington making preparations for bus strike action

Greater Wellington Regional Council says some bus operations in the Hutt Valley and Wellington could be affected by industrial action involving the Tramways Union and operator Tranzurban next Tuesday.

While the Council says it is preparing for all possible disruption scenarios, it is still encouraging the union and operator to continue to make every effort to work towards resolution.

It says it is keeping passengers updated on the evolving situation through its own website and social media channels, as well as public information on radio and newspapers.

“The key message for our customers is to please check before you travel. Use Metlink’s app or website to check for any cancelled services,” a spokesperson said.

Please check out this website, sign up at My Metlink and / or download our Metlink Commuter app for timely updates about your service.
