Metro is the public transport service that operates in Greater Christchurch and Timaru.
Environment Canterbury (Canterbury Regional Council) is the lead agency for providing services. We are responsible for planning services, tendering out to independent operators, and providing information such as timetables, telephone services, websites and marketing Metro.
The city and district councils that the buses travel through – Christchurch City, Waimakariri District, Selwyn District and Timaru District Councils – are responsible for providing and maintaining the on-street infrastructure such as bus exchanges, bus stops, bus shelters and bus priority lanes.
In Greater Christchurch Red Bus Ltd, Leopard Coachlines Ltd, Go Bus Ltd and Black Cat Ltd have been awarded the tenders to supply the vehicles and drivers for the various bus and ferry routes that operate.URL: http://www.metroinfo.co.nz
