NZ Bus lockout decision - what you need to know

Service Changes Customers & Communities

Metlink is deeply disappointed and surprised to learn that NZ Bus has decided to lockout of Tramways Union members from 4am Saturday 24 April 2021.

The lockout means that following the industrial action on 23 April, Tramways Union members will not be able to return to work unless they accept NZ Bus’ most recent offer.

This means all services on the following NZ Bus routes below will be cancelled until further notice:

Metlink is asking customers to know before they go and plan alternative journeys if needed and advises customers to sign up to MyMetlink and turn notifications on.

Metlink services not listed above, run by our other bus operators, are scheduled to run as normal.

Our website will be kept up to date with the latest information.
