Wellington's regional council will this week lobby the Government to let it own and run its own buses in what would be a move back to the 1990s.
Regional council chairman Daran Ponter confirmed the council would this week make a submission to the Government which - assuming councillors agreed on Thursday - would call for a change in how public transport was tendered for and operated.
The key change would make it much easier for councils to buy and run buses rather than sending them out for tender. It would not necessarily mean councils retaking ownership of buses but would make that an option.
