To Haitaitai Metlink Customers...

Community Engagement Advisor from Greater Wellington

As the Transport Committee Chair for Greater Wellington Regional Council I want to acknowledge your frustrations in Hataitai.

The current level of service is not where we want it to be for you and our growing number of passengers.

Metlink is introducing a number of measures to help reduce morning peak pressure in Hataitai and get you on your way:

They have added 15 more Route 2 services on the road now – these services are called ‘2A’ but will not show on the RTI or on Metlink timetables until 8 March 2020. For more information - www.neighbourly.co.nz...

Where possible Metlink is using bigger buses to help

It has introduced a new early bird fare giving you 25% off if you can travel before 7am and use Snapper

These are just some of the early steps Metlink and its operators are taking and I will ensure that they continue to do everything they can to strengthen Hataitai services.

Tell us about the coronavirus lockdown champions in your community

The Team Reporter from Stuff

Hey neighbours,

We want to celebrate the unsung heroes who are keeping our country going through lockdown.

Frontline nurse Debra Larsen's life has turned into a "real whirlwind" since the coronavirus outbreak began.

She's been so busy setting up testing centres around the Waikato. and helping them run smoothly that she's barely seen her two teenage daughters.

Do you know a coronavirus lockdown champion who deserves to be recognised? Tell us about them in the comments below.

Are you OK?

The Team from Wellington District Police

Your emotional and mental wellbeing is important. It is normal to feel stressed or lonely when self-isolating, but there are some things you can do to feel better.

Even if you are not sick you may be feeling anxious about COVID-19. This is normal.

Reach out to your family and whānau, friends and workmates. Sharing how we feel and offering support to others is important.

We want to remind you that if you or someone you know is struggling right now, there is free help available.
