Kāpiti Transport – Metlink offering full service under Covid Level 2.
The Government has placed the Wellington region into Alert Level 2. Please be assured that Metlink will continue to offer a full service across its train, bus and harbour ferry network. If you are sick, do not travel on public transport. If you can, work from home.
Fares will remain in place at Alert Level 2 and we will be accepting cash, but continue to recommend people use other options that are available. Buses will retain front door boarding for the time being which will allow for customer accessibility needs.
Physical distancing will be re-introduced 12 noon, this means we will need customers to adhere to a 1m physical distancing on vehicles and a 2m physical distancing at stop/wharf or station if possible wear face masks whilst using our service as per MoH and Govt guidelines.
Please also note that we will not be able to get physical distancing stickers onto vehicles/stops in time for the 12 noon deadline, so we ask that you self-manage distancing by sitting one seat apart and remaining 2m apart whilst waiting for your service.
Checklist for using public transport – please commit to good hand hygiene, wear a mask if possible on public transport, maintain safe physical distancing and log your travel for contact tracing purposes.
Your safety, and our Metlink team’s safety, is paramount so please continue to follow Government instructions. Thank you.
