A bus driver has been robbed at knifepoint in the Wellington suburb of Miramar.

Police say the driver was parked near the bus turn-around-point on Darlington Road at about 10m on Thursday when a man got on the bus and demanded money.

The man made off with a small amount of cash and was last seen running along Darlington Road towards Camperdown Road.

Police say the man, described as a dark skinned male, of medium height and build, and aged between 18 and 25, may have discarded the driver's money tin, labelled 'Tom 775'.
