Lost Connections

BUS CHANGES “REALLY INCONSIDERATE”

The Greater Wellington Regional City Council has released its proposed changes to the Wellington bus network as part of its bus review.

The Council first sought consultation from residents in 2009, seeking further input earlier this year.

The new plan claims to increase the frequency of services to the Victoria’s Kelburn campus during evenings and weekends. However, under the changes, the Campus Connection which currently runs between Karori and Miramar, visiting Massey University and all of Victoria’s campuses, will no longer be servicing Newtown.

A student Salient spoke to said, “Considering the amount of students that live in newtown due to the ridiculous expensive rents around university, it’s a really inconsiderate move by the council.”

As part of a trial designed to boost transport efficiency, late running buses will soon have green-light priority at intersections.
