Gulf Harbour commuters face more cancelled ferry trips

Commuters on Auckland's Gulf Harbour peninsula are facing even more cancelled ferry trips, leaving some with no option but to spend two hours on a bus if they need to get to town.

From today, the Gulf Harbour ferry will only operate twice in the morning, and twice in the evening, a decision Auckland Council says was necessary due to a shortage of staff.

Replacement buses, that take double the time, will now have to pick up the slack.
