Buses replace trains during union meeting today

Metlink advise that buses will replace some midday train services on all lines (except Wairarapa) on Wednesday 10 October from 11.00am to 3.00pm, so staff can attend a union ratification meeting.

Metlink advise that although bus replacements will attempt to follow the train timetable, it is advisable to plan ahead and allow additional time for journeys, as buses may be delayed.

Ticket offices at Paraparaumu, Porirua, Petone and Upper Hutt will be closed during this time, but tickets can still be purchased on board with cash.
