Strike action tomorrow disrupts Hamilton bus passengers

Hamilton bus services will be disrupted during the day tomorrow due to industrial action by bus drivers.

First Union members have given notice to Go Bus Transport that they will strike from 9.30am until 1pm (Wednesday, 3 October).

All regional services – 20 Cambridge, 21 Northern Connector, 22 Morrinsville/Paeroa, 23 Raglan and 24 Te Awamutu – will operate as normal.

The Orbiter and CBD Shuttle will also run as normal. However, no other Hamilton bus services will operate for the duration of the industrial action.

Waikato Regional Council, which is responsible for managing bus service contracts in the region, urged people to check for updates before they travelled in case there were further changes.

Public transport operations manager Andrew Wilson said service updates would be posted to the BUSIT Facebook page and website.

“We apologise for any inconvenience and are working closely with Go Bus to minimise the inconvenience and disruption for passengers as much as possible.”
