Train fares to rise
By JESSICA TAPPENDEN
An increase in train fares is not related to the
Rugby World Cup, says Wellington Regional
Council s Peter Glensor.
Stadium connection train fares are to rise $2 for
adults and $1 for children per round trip from
Mr Glensor, the regional council s economic
wellbeing chairman, said the increases were not
at all related to Rugby World Cup games, which
start in Wellington on September 11.
He did not feel an increase in stadium fares
would encourage people to drive their own cars,
instead of using public transport.
The council agreed on an increase in fare rev-
enue of 3 per cent to meet growing public trans-
port costs, he said.
This meant fare increases for some train and
The stadium package had remained untouched
for some time, while other packages had had more
recent fare increases.
Mr Glensor said the increases were not being
used as an excuse to cash in on the Rugby World
Harbour ferry fares, day rover, three-day rover
and group rover train fares and after-midnight
bus fares would not increase.
Last year, single-trip cash fares and those for
trips of more than 11 zones increased.
This year the focus would be on multi-trip fares
and trips of up to 10 zones.
The council farebox policy, which was being
made compulsory by the Government, meant half
the costs of public transport were met through
fares, and the other half by council ratepayers and
the Government. Fare increases would be in line
with the policy.
For a relatively small population, such as Wel-
lington s, the costs are huge, said Mr Glensor.
We try, through regular fare increases, to
share these costs as fairly as possible.
