Extended Route 18e service starts today

From today, 1 October, the 18e bus route is extended as a seven-day-a-week service, including buses between 6.00pm and 8.00pm, from Miramar North to Karori South.

It will provide direct connections to Newtown, the hospital, Massey University and Victoria University’s Kelburn campus.

Metlink advise that this service will run without transfers and be available as an all-day service rather than just peak hours.

Some shuttle buses for route 18 will be replaced by full-size buses numbered 18e.
