Transfer between all Metlink buses at no extra cost with Snapper

You’ll be able to transfer at no extra cost between all Metlink buses (within 30 minutes of tagging off) anywhere in the Hutt Valley. You’ll have to use Snapper to pay, not cash.

From Sunday 15 July 2018, your Snapper card will allow you to transfer at no extra cost on all Metlink buses in the Wellington region.

Minor changes to bus timetables

We’re making minor changes to bus timetables in the Hutt Valley so there are more reliable connections with the new train timetable to be introduced from Sunday 15 July 2018.

There will also be a minor change to bus N8 after-midnight departure times from Lower Hutt to Courtenay Place. When our bus timetables change on Sunday 17 June, the connections between bus and rail services will not be perfect until new rail timetables come into effect. Please bear with us during these changes and check your new bus timetable carefully.

Changes to school buses

We are working with schools to keep them up to date on changes to Metlink school bus routes, timetables, tickets and passes in Terms 2 and 3. More information will soon be available at

Metlink lime and yellow buses are on their way

We won’t be getting all our new buses at once, so please bear with us. If you’re catching a bus, please check the number and destination – rather than the colour of the bus.

More changes coming

From Sunday 15 July 2018, there will be further changes to public transport in the region. These include fares, more frequent off-peak trains on the Hutt Valley and Kapiti lines, and further region-wide improvements to bus routes and timetables, including a new bus network for Wellington city. Detailed information on these changes will be provided in advance.

New bus services

From Monday 18 June 2018, there will be a new weekday service for Riverstone Terraces. The new route 113 will have four bus trips into Upper Hutt in the morning and then four return bus trips in the afternoon and evening. Twelve new bus stops have been installed.

In the coming months, we’re improving our public transport network, helping commuter, students, visitors, day-trippers – in fact everyone – to connect to what’s great in our region. We need a network that can carry more people to more places. As part of this improvement, from Sunday 17 June 2018 there will be changes to school and public bus services in the Hutt Valley. The changes in the Hutt Valley are:

Pinehaven Community Hall


Wednesday 24 October 2018

After many years of volunteering, a number of Committee members will be stepping down this year. If you’re a keen Pinehaven resident who’d like to get in amongst it and share your stories, skills and expertise for a great cause, please take this chance to get involved. Serving your community as a PPA Committee member is a hugely rewarding experience, and it’d be great to welcome some new faces to the team.

It’s that time of year again. Local residents are invited to come along to the PPA AGM and hear what’s kept the Committee busy over the last 12 months, and plans for the year ahead.

Organisers: Pat van Berkel & Ocean Mercier, Orienteering Hutt Valley

There is also a harder 3-hour event, 6pm – 9pm, with registration and map collection at 5:25pm – see

Between 5:45pm and 6:10pm you can pay your registration fee of $8/adult, $5/child, $20/family and pick up your map and question sheet.

Plan your route until the briefing at 6:20pm. The event starts at 6:30pm and ends at 7:30pm.

It starts at the Silverpine Scout Hall in the Pinehaven Reserve. The one-hour team event is an easy walk/jog around the suburbs of Pinehaven and Silverstream with some small excursions into bush areas. All are welcome to take part.

On Tuesday evening 27 November 2018 a Rogaine is being held in Pinehaven. A Rogaine is a fun team orienteering event in which you visit as many controls marked on a map as you can in the time limit. You have a question/answer sheet to record your answer at each visited control. You can walk or run and visit controls in any order. Each control is worth points but you lose points for every minute you are late back.
