Unreliable - hit and miss. At times I've experienced amazing service from some bus drivers, other times I've experienced horrific service from them, and other times they just don't even show up. Fares are overpriced and just keep getting raised but there is no improvement in services. Some bus drivers are downright dangerous - I've seen them drive with their doors open - flying around corners, not wait until frail old ladies have taken a seat before taking off (and of course, flying around corners and/or breaking suddenly) - I've seen those same old ladies fall to the ground or into the seat.
The drivers on average are by far the worst mannered of any bus service I've used in NZ or Aus. The only reason I continue to use them is because there is no other option - the same reason they get away with raising fares without improving services.
Really happy with the train services of recent times. The trains used to get a bad wrap for always being late but in the past year of using them they have always been very reliable. Most of the train staff are really friendly and quite often go out of their way to brighten your day.
Hit and miss at it's finest. I've experienced utter chaos unfold at the train station when faults have occurred and no one knows what's going on. The buses are even worse mainly due to their unpredictability and the mood of the drivers. Occasionally I'll have a good experience but for the most part using Metlink leaves me feeling queasy. One up for them is their online journey planner.
This outfit runs the bus services in Wellington. Not sure if they are council owned or private. Either way, every bus that I caught on my stay in Wellington was on time, clean, tidy, modern and the drivers were friendly. Fares were entirely reasonable and the frequency of the service was great too.
