Valid from: 01/12/2018 12:00am

From 9 December we're making timetable changes to some key bus routes in the northern suburbs, including out to Porirua, which you may need to be aware of.

These changes should improve bus journeys for many of you, delivering improved reliability, better connections between services and increased Saturday evening frequencies on route 52. There will also be bus stop changes to routes 60 and 60e at Porirua Station to help with congestion. 

These routes are changing:

Route 52 Route 56 Route 57 Route 58 Route 60 Route 60e

Please make sure you check your journey before you travel so you’re at your bus stop on time:

  • You can check your trip ahead of time via the Journey Planner  or you can also check timetables remembering to select from 9 December onwards.
