There will be no rise in bus and train fares before June 2020.

Greater Wellington Regional Council confirmed in today’s council meeting that fares will be held at current levels.

“This is good news for bus and train users,” says Chair of the council’s Sustainable Transport Committee, Cr Barbara Donaldson.

“Metlink is enjoying unprecedented growth in patronage across buses and trains. Holding fares will encourage even more people to use public transport and with more passengers we will see a positive impact on income,” adds Cr Donaldson.
