Valid from: 12/07/2018 6:00am
Hey Wellington city. Make sure you know before you go.The new Wellington city network is here. As we get our new network up to speed there may be a few bumps in the road. Make sure you stay up to date with our alerts.
If you subscribe to alerts on your favourite route or have real time information set for your favourite stops through your My Metlink account you need to review these and update if your route has changed.
To update your My Metlink account click on the My Metlink link in the top right hand corner of the screen - you will need to login if you aren't already. You will see your My Metlink account details. Scroll down to the bus section and select the new route. You can also set up your fares preference at the same time.
Metlink Commuter app update
The Metlink Commuter app will update with the new routes during Sunday, times will vary depending on when you last used it. Just make sure that the new routes are showing before you update.
To update your favourite stops and services click on the favourites star in the bottom left hand corner. Click on the services button and scroll until you find your new routes. You can select your favourite stops in the real time information screen by clicking on the favourite stop star.
These services do not change
If your favourite service is one of the following you don't need to do anything, the route numbers aren't changing - 7 Kingston, 13 Mairangi, 14 Wilton/Roseneath, 21 Karori/Wrights Hill, 28 Beacon Hill Shuttle, 52 Newlands/Woodridge/Paparangi, 56 Paparangi, 57 Woodridge and 58 Newlands.
You need to confirm what your new service is
All other routes are likely to have new route numbers. We have some tools to help you work out what your new route number is:
- Search your regular trip on the Journey Planner (make sure you select a date after 15 July) - you will also be able to confirm what your trip will cost with the changes to fares
- Check our Wellington city bus route tool - if you select "suburb" it is an easy way of seeing all the routes that you may be able to take
- Check the "cheat sheet" below but we do recommend confirming in either the Journey Planner or Wellington city bus route tool
