METLINK MOVES TO SUNDAY SERVICES FROM WEDNESDAY

Community Engagement Advisor from Metlink: On Our Way

In response to the Prime Minister’s address today on raised COVID-19 levels, Metlink will be moving to Sunday services across all public transport modes from Wednesday 25 March.

Metlink GM Scott Gallacher says, that while there are still a number of issues to work out, all trains and buses will move to Sunday services after Tuesday.

“We’ll work to deliver to the current timetables across the network tomorrow but from first thing Wednesday morning, Sunday timetables will be implemented,” says Mr Gallacher.

Buses will no longer board from the front door. Metlink apologises to customers who rely on the accessibility options provided at the front door and encourages customers to find out more about Total Mobility services during this time by calling 0800 801 700.

Customers will be encouraged to continue their own physical distancing practices on all trains and buses, leaving a space next to them where they can.

“We’re still working out what this might mean for Wairarapa rail services and will provide more updates when they become available,” says Mr Gallacher.

UPDATE: As part of the move to Sunday timetables, Metlink school bus services will not run from Wednesday.

Problems with Countdown Delivery Service

Tim from Hataitai

Has anyone else had issues with getting their online grocery orders delivered?  I've used this service for four years, and none of the previous drivers have had any complaints about taking my order up the public stairwell to my apartment - as of two months ago, the current driver refuses to carry my order up the stairs to my unit.
