Blue Line

3 months ago

We had proposed to change the Blue Line route back to travel via Lineside Road in Rangiora and Smith Street in Kaiapoi, in order to reconnect Kaiapoi’s town centre with Rangiora. There was strong support from the community for this change during the initial consultation, so we aren’t proposing anything different this time around.

The Blue Line would continue to operate at its current frequency. Later this year, we will be consulting with you on new commuter bus services that will use the Northern Arterial Motorway. If new commuter services are introduced, there are likely to be some changes to the Blue Line peak frequency, reflecting that many passengers may move across to these new services.
