Greater Wellington plans for and funds Metlink, the region's public transport network.
The network includes a comprehensive range of bus services throughout the region; five passenger rail lines from Wellington - Johnsonville, Kapiti, Melling, Upper Hutt and Wairarapa; and the harbour ferry which travels between Wellington, Matiu / Somes Island, Eastbourne and Seatoun.
Greater Wellington is also responsible for public transport infrastructure such as railway stations, bus and ferry shelters, signage and park and ride facilities.
Park and Ride facilities are available at, or near railway stations. When you catch the train you can park your car for free.
Currently there is at least one disabled car park in each Park and Ride. Greater Wellington recently adopted a policy of providing a minimum of two spaces for disabled car parks. These will appear as each car park is resurfaced or rebuilt.
There are currently more than 130 Real Time Information (RTI) displays delivering actual running times of bus services across Greater Wellington’s public transport network using GPS tracking.
If you are at a bus stop that doesn’t have a display you can get real time information from our mobile website m.metlink.org.nz or call the Metlink Service Centre.
If you have a permanent disability which prevents you from using public transport, you may be eligible for taxi discounts through the Total Mobility scheme. For more information about how to apply, phone 0800 801 700.
