Metlink – Bus Changes

From Sunday 15 July 2018, there’ll be changes for school students using Metlink buses and trains in Kāpiti, from Paekakariki to Ōtaki.

If students use public transport to travel to and from school, they need to know about changes to fares and tickets for Metlink trains and buses from Sunday 15 July 2018, ahead of the start of Term 3.

Snapper Cards are available from the following locations:

  • Mana Coach Services Depot, 35 Hinemoa Street, Paraparaumu
  • Kapiti iSITE Visitor Centre, Mediterranean Foods Kapiti, Main Road, Paraparaumu
  • Coastlands Mall

Metlink ‘AmBUSsadors’ will be providing free snapper cards to students with existing Mana cards. The ‘AmBUSsadors’ will not physically take the Mana bus card as the Mana card will still be valid up to and including Saturday 14 July. Those given a Snapper card will have their Mana stamped in the process as this will verify that the Mana card was replaced with a Snapper.

The new Metlink lemon and lime buses are on their way to Kāpiti, but not all at once. If catching a bus, please check the number and destination – rather than the colour of the bus.
