Tranz Metro train disruptions – timetable changes Tuesday Oct 8

KiwiRail  have now inspected Greater Wellington Regional Council’s entire Matangi fleet of 48. As a result eight sets have been taken out of service for further detailed inspections as the particular component being checked is slightly out of alignment. As this work won’t be completed before the morning services begin there will be some changes to the normal timetable. We will have a clearer indication today (Tuesday Oct 8th) regarding further disruptions after speaking to the manufacturer about the process to get these trains back into service as soon as possible. 
From this morning (Tuesday October 8th) a half hourly bus service will replace trains on the Johnsonville Line for the rest of the day and Melling services will be replaced by bus between Petone and Melling. Information on these changes and bus replacements will be  on the Tranz Metro website
We apologise to our customers for this disruption.
