The Airport Flyer has been a part of our city’s transport network for over 20 years, and now there is a risk that we may permanently lose this service.
In February the Regional Council decided to include an airport bus service as part of the subsidised public transport network, due to start in 2022.
However, the Regional Council’s preference is to only provide the bus service between Wellington Train Station and the Wellington Airport. This means Lower Hutt residents will have no direct bus route to and from the Airport.
This isn’t good enough. Lower Hutt is a large and growing city and requires a range of high quality public transport options, including a direct bus service to the airport. People across Lower Hutt pay regional rates, but will be subsidising a service that will only run between the Airport and Wellington Station.
