Metlink is offering free travel to customers on Christmas Day and New Year's Eve.

Customers will only need to hop on and off of the trains as there will be no need to use Snapper cards or tickets for the two days.

During Christmas Day and New Year's Eve busses will be running as a usual Sunday timetable in Wellington City, Hutt Valley, Porirua and Kapiti. A special timetable will be applied for Wairarapa.

Train services on the Kapiti, Johnsonville and Hutt Valley lines will be running as a usual Sunday timetable. There will not be Melling or Wairarapa Line services.

During New Year's Eve, train services on the Kapiti, Johnsonville, Hutt Valley and Wairarapa lines will be running as usual Saturday timetables. The Melling Line will run every hour from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm.

“It’s been a long and hard year for many of us. Metlink would like to help people celebrate the holidays, connect with their friends and family and get home safely using public transport, so we’ve made it as easy and affordable as possible over the two big days of the season,” says Metlink general manager Scott Gallacher.

“A Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to one and all from Metlink.”
