New bus services bring increased capacity for Karori commuters

Two additional buses have been introduced to increase passenger capacity for Karori commuters during the daily peak, timed for 07:50 and 08:30 Monday through Friday between Karori Park and Courtenay Place.

The buses will double up for existing buses already running on posted timetables, providing additional capacity rather than newly scheduled services, for the next three months .

Sourced from Mana Coachlines, the green buses will not feature Metlink livery but will be easily identifiable and display the sign: Route 2 Courtenay Place.

“We know there’s a capacity problem on this route so we’re doing something about it. In the short term the additional buses will help move passengers to their destinations into town. Over the longer term we will better match demand by adding higher capacity buses rather than additional vehicles,’ says Greater Wellington councillor Daran Ponter.

“Where significant capacity issues have been identified, Metlink has acted to meet customer needs. Since mid-August 10 buses have now been added into existing schedules to provide a temporary increase in capacity ahead of the full roll out of the bus fleet. We’ve heard, and we’re acting on, customer feedback.”
