Bus routes and stops during Wallace St closure

Published 28/11/2019

Wondering what happens to buses during the closure of Wallace Street starting from the 5th of January 2019? Here's what you need to know.

The buses affected by the closed section of Wallace St are #3 Lyall Bay/Rongotai – Wellington Station; #18e Karori – Miramar; #27 Vogeltown – Wellington Station and school buses 718, 726 and 770.

These buses will use a detour route along Wright St, (except the school bus #770 afternoon service which will be diverted via Adelaide Road). There will be a temporary bus stop on each side of Wright St next to the walkway to replace the existing one on Wallace St.

Metlink has tested buses on the diversion route along Wright St and work is being done on the road to ensure safety, camber and turning is suitable for the buses.

#27 buses will not be stopping at Hutchison Terminus and will travel from Vogeltown along Hutchison Rd directly onto Wright St, bypassing the Hutchison Terminus, and vice versa. Passengers should catch the #27 bus from Wright St.
