More buses for Wellington
Greater Wellington Regional Council is working urgently to provide more buses for the growing number of people catching buses from Karori, Wadestown, Wilton and Khandallah.
“We are working with the bus operator to get extra buses as soon as possible ,” says Paul Swain GWRC Public Transport Portfolio Leader.
“As soon as we can find extra buses they will be out there,” says Cr Swain.

“It’s great that more people are getting out of cars and into buses.”
Regional councillors approved a recommendation today to put on seven extra peak time buses in the western suburbs:
