Thousands of Auckland bus users will have to find another way to get around the city today as drivers attend a scheduled union meeting.

Metrolink, North Star, GO West, Waka Pacific, City Link and Outer Link bus services will be off the roads for five hours, from 9am to 2.30pm.

All other bus services, as well as trains and ferries will operate as normal.

More than 800 drivers are stopping work to vote on a pay offer, after eight days of pay talks of union talks with the company ended without agreement for a new employment deal.


Bus services run by Ritchies, Howick and Eastern, Birkenhead Transport, Urban Express and Airbus will not be affected.
