Only a handful of bus services in Auckland will be now cancelled on Monday 6 May 2019 due to changes to employment laws.
Auckland Transport has worked closely with bus operators and unions to minimise changes to services, brought about by an amendment to the Employment Relations Act.
The changes come into effect from Monday (6 May 2019) and prescribe more regular work time breaks for bus drivers. This in turn means some cancellations or services, particularly on the Northern Express, running up to five minutes later than previously.
Earlier in the week, Auckland Transport announced that approximately 120 of the 13,043 services operated each day would be cancelled but that number is now down to 41 on a weekday and even fewer on the weekend.
AT Group Manager Metro Services, Stacey Van Der Putten says there's been a great collaborative effort. "In the past few weeks, we have worked closely with our operators, they have done a great job, helping us keep the impact very low. To have the number of affected services drop further this week is great news for our customers."
All trips that are affected will be cancelled in our real time information services so that customers have the most up to date information both online, though the AT Mobile app and at bus stops.
