Bus routes and timetable changes on Monday 28 September

Upcoming timetable changes

New timetables and routes now in place

Updates to Metro’s bus timetables are being rolled out in three stages over the coming months. The first stage will be implemented from Monday 28 September, including all schedule and route changes that resulted from the Waimakariri service review, along with some adjustments to the 125 Redwood – Westlake timetable.

See the new timetables below or plan out your trip on our Journey Planner.

What’s next?

The next stage of changes will take place on 29 November. Confirmation of what services are changing and their new timetables will be available at least two weeks prior to implementation.

We’re also introducing new direct commuter services from Waimakariri to central Christchurch in January 2021, following the opening of the Christchurch Northern Corridor. This will be followed by a third and final stage of timetable changes around February 2021. More information on each of these will be available closer to the time.

A new look for our buses

We’ve also recently introduced a new single brand look for our buses. This is being rolled out across over the coming months and includes phasing out the current ‘Metro Line’ buses. First up is the Blue Line, which is now known as 1 Rangiora – Cashmere. The other coloured lines will follow in the coming months.
