Snow/ice update midday: Most hillside buses back to full service

Published: 8/06/2012 12:39 p.m. 

The majority of Christchurch hillside bus routes will resume full services from midday.  However the following three routes will continue with limited services due to poor road conditions:

  • 11 Westmorland will end on Cashmere Rd
  • 18 Huntsbury will end on Wilsons Rd
  • 28 Lyttelton and Rapaki will NOT travel to Rapaki but end in Lyttelton

Scheduled services will operate until the end of the day today.  However this decision will be revised if weather conditions deteriorate significantly. A further update will be provided by 5.00pm.  

Again we remind people that buses will be driving to the conditions so delays are to be expected.  At some stops the bus may not be able to pull into the curb so will pull-up where they can do so safely.  Passengers are asked to make their way across curb-side snow to board the bus.

Please check the website or Facebook page for more specific information or access the real-time information on the Metroinfo website.
