Capital Woes


An early morning in the life of a Wellington train commuter!

Today’s delays - and it’s only 7am.

At least Tranz Metro is good at getting the info out fast , by several means. Like twitter.

In Auckland, we’re way behind.




  1. Jeremy Harris says:

    Theirs should be over sooner too with their electrification and new rolling stock coming sooner..!

  2. Brent C says:

    I wondered why it was quiet at the railway station this morning. No problems on the Paraparaumu line thankfully!

  3. Grant says:

    A slip was responible for the bus replacements and one breakdown knocked over the 6.28 Wellington to UH service. first plan was to cancel the returning 7.40 from Upper Hutt, but input from other staff resulted in decsion to cancel the 7.19 from Taita, and send the set that should have made that on up to Upper Hutt and use it for the 7.40 from there. Intersting fact to consider when comparing the performance levels: My cell phone in the last 12 hours has recived 16 delay texts from Veolia and 5 from Tranz Metro. (since 7.00am)

  4. Bryan says:

    Put in a third line from Petone to Wellington then “Express Units can use it or do what Brisbane has a third line from Caboolture and that frees the other line for the local all stations.

  5. Chris says:

    I don’t know If I can handle New Zealand PT when I get back from my exchange In Japan. I get titchy if my trains even a few minutes late now. Which it hardly ever is. The only time theres a delay that I’ve found so far is when theres a suicide on one of the lines.
