Would bus travellers be prepared to accept more
transfers in exchange for more frequent and
That's the question a Wellington Regional
Council consultation will be investigating next
A review of city bus services has led to a pro-
posal to increase the number of core routes oper-
ating 15-minute services and extending secondary
routes with 30-minute all-day services.
The downside would be some passengers
needing to transfer services en route.
The council's economic wellbeing committee
agreed to begin consulting commuters in January.
Council senior public transport planner Doug
Weir said a 15 per cent increase in the number of
bus trips was proposed, thereby increasing the
frequency of services.
Outside the meeting he said new transfer stops
would be established at strategic points, but would
not say specifically where.
The bulk of people won't be affected by a trans-
fer because even in those outer areas we will be
running full services anyway,'' he said.
The transfer stations would be spacious, well-lit
and have real-time display signs, but he did not
expect the majority of people making transfers
would need to wait.
The whole idea is to make those transfers
In the council's quarterly review, committee
members were told that 99.8 per cent of bus
services run on time, with on time'' defined as no
more than 10 minutes late.
Air link between Wellington and Asia looks one step closer
Wellingtonians seem excited about the
prospect of being more connected with
Asia. Most of the public submissions on
the draft economic development strategy
agreed with the need to develop a long-
haul attraction fund to attract an air car-
rier to operate direct flights between Wel-
lington and Asia.
There were 45 submissions on the plan,
of which 29 offered an opinion on setting
up the attraction fund. Seventy-three per
cent agreed and 17 per cent disagreed.
