COVID-19: Metlink update at Orange

From 11.59pm, Wednesday 13 April, the Wellington Region is at Orange. 

Please continue to follow the guidance from the Government while travelling on public transport.

With Omicron in our community, we’re seeing an impact on public transport. We are doing everything that we can to keep our public transport functioning, and maintain a full service where possible – we continue to actively manage our available staff to run bus, train, and ferry services.

At Orange:

  • Face masks must be worn while on board. 
    • All masks must be attached to the head by loops around the ears or head. That means no more scarves, bandannas, or jerseys pulled up over the face.
    • All students Year 4 and above will also need to wear a face mask on public transport and dedicated school services.
    • Wear a face mask
  • All accessibility features are in service, meaning front door boarding on buses and availability of ramps on trains.
  • All payment methods are available, including cash, however contactless payment is preferred where available.

If you’re unwell, please avoid public transport and stay home.
