Trains are a vital part of Wellington's public transport network.
Greater Wellington funds rail services on four key lines throughout the region: Hutt Valley, Johnsonville, Kapiti and Wairarapa.
More than 11,000 commuters take the train into and out of Wellington each day of the working week.
Without rail services, congestion on the region's roads would reduce the quality of life, produce poorer environmental outcomes and weaken the economy.
Greater Wellington regularly monitors services and carries out service reviews to better meet passengers' needs and to ensure ratepayers are getting value for money.
