Bus commuters are advised to plan their journeys carefully on Thursday 5 July as bus services provided by North Star, GO WEST, Metrolink, City Link, Outer Link and Waka Pacific will not run between 9:00am and 2:30pm due to a scheduled union meeting of NZ bus drivers.
The Auckland Tramways Union and First Union represent the majority of NZ Bus drivers in Auckland and have called a meeting of all members on Thursday 5 July to ratify terms within a new Collective Employment Agreement.
As a result of this union meeting, all North Star, GO WEST, Metrolink, City Link, Outer Link and Waka Pacific bus services will be suspended between 9:00am and 2:30pm. This means no buses operated by NZ Bus except Inner Link will run between 9:00am and 2:30pm on Thursday 5 July. All NZ Bus services prior to 9:00am and after 2:30pm will run to schedule. The Inner Link service will not be affected and will run to schedule all day.
NZ Bus wish to apologise to our customers for any inconvenience caused.
