Taxi drivers will be out in force in Wellington on Thursday while bus drivers strike.
Combined Taxis Wellington chair Dave Clyma told Newshub he’s expecting a lot of customers.
“We have increased the staff in our pool centre, we’re sending out hourly bulletins to our drivers to ensure they are aware and make themselves available.”
Commuters can keep up to date on Metlink’s website.
Wellington drivers announced their intention to strike earlier in October. Advocates said drivers are frustrated by working conditions following the roll out of a new network in the city.
