In its first six days of operation, Wellington’s new Airport Express bus has transported 4552 passengers – four times more passengers than the previous service carried in a month. The service had carried 3000 passengers in its first four days, compared with 1000 each month on the old Airport Flyer, Wellington mayor Andy Foster said during his election announcement on Newstalk ZB on Thursday morning.

Metlink’s network and customer manager David Boyd said he was “delighted with the number of people”.

“It is clear by the strong start that latent demand for this Metlink service is high. We know demand will continue to grow as people and organisations plan their work and recreational travel with the Airport Express in mind.”
