In addition to the current bus services during COVID-19 level 4 lockdown, Metlink will run a Masterton town service on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings for essential travel only (e.g. to the supermarket). This aligns with pension/benefit days.
The service will follow the usual town service routes (201, 202, 203 and 206) in a circuit starting from 9am at Church Street.
There will then be a return service starting at 11am following the same circuit.
Please note: This will run as an ‘on demand service’ to assist the local residents getting to the supermarket/pharmacy etc. and back. The return timings will be approximate due to the current queueing times.
I'm working on a travel story for Stuff about the things that have surprised returning Kiwis about New Zealand. If you have recently returned from overseas or know someone who has, it would be great to hear about the things that have stood out for you, for better or for worse. Whether it's to do with the weather, the cost of things, the public transport, the food, the housing, the people or something else entirely, we'd be keen to hear about it. Please remember that your comment may be included in the article, unless you say you don't want it to be. Thank you.
International travellers flying into New South Wales are now paying A$3000 (NZ$3168) for their two-week stint in hotel quarantine. Travellers will be charged A$3000 for one adult, A$1000 for each additional adult and A$500 per child aged three and over. Children under three will stay free of charge. Do you think Kiwis should be charged for their isolation costs? Nzwww.stuff.co.nz...
