NZ Bus services are off the road, and Auckland Transport says Ritchies will operate limited morning and evening rush hour bus services along Dominion and Mt Eden roads.
The cancelled routes include NZ Bus school buses and Link routes.
Services run by other operators are not affected, and train and ferry services will run as normal.
NZ Bus drivers seeking better pay and conditions refused to collect fares last week, and now those drivers have been suspended.
