Will There Be Enough Bus Drivers?

July 16, 2018

Wellington's new commuter bus operator has confirmed it will be down-to-the wire to see if it has enough bus drivers to run full services today.

 

The Tramways Union estimates bus operator Tranzit will be about 200 drivers short, while Tranzit managing director Paul Snelgrove predicts a "worst-case" shortage of 10 to 15 drivers.

 

The disputed figure is symptomatic of the tension between the union and company that has

been seething since Tranzit was the awarded contracts for most of Wellington's commuter

routes. 

 

While Tranzit took over yesterday, its first real test comes this morning when commuters will expect a full workday bus service.
