Transdev’s Mana Newlands Coaches is pleased to be running Metlink’s On Demand trial in Tawa and Porirua until the end of the year.

The On Demand service was introduced in Tawa in May 2022 before an extension to the Porirura CBD in June 2023.

It’s an app based service where customers order rides from small 14-seater buses running without set routes between about 600 flexible, virtual stops depending on demand. A fixed fare of $2.50 is paid through the app, making it similar to rideshare apps – but much more affordable.

Mana Newlands Managing Director Craig Chin said the extension showed Greater Wellington Regional Council’s commitment to connecting more people with public transport.
