Operates the majority of urban bus services in Christchurch including an Airport Bus Service and the free Central City Shuttle, as well as the popular Metro Star Service.

AWUNZ & Red Bus Management enjoy a good working relationship, largely due to the excellent services of very able and experienced delegates. Out of approximately 350 employees the majority are current financial members of our Union.
