Wellington commuters are in for more disruption with news that about 40 trains won't run until the end of January.

It says the increase in unplanned cancellations is because of staff shortages. Other services will be replaced by buses, or have reduced capacity from today.

And while industry leaders say the government's immigration changes are on the right track, they won't be a silver bullet.
