From Morning Report, 6:42 am on 23 July 2018

Wellington's new bus network will be put to the test today as parents and school children return from holidays. It comes on the same day as fifty bus drivers strike to protest their working hours. Drivers last week struggled to adjust to new timetables and bus routes, causing delays and disruption for commuters. Greater Wellington Regional Council runs Metlink. Regional councillor Daran Ponter talks to Philippa Tolley.
