Aro Valley Community Council presents a public consultation meeting.
Speakers: Brent Efford 'History of Public Transport in Aro St"
Daran Ponter and Paul Bruce, Greater Wellington Regional Councillors.

These presentation sessions are intended to inform members of the public so they can make informed submissions on the Wellington Bus Service Review, which will propose some significant changes to our bus services.

The Wellington Bus Service Review is due to go out for public submissions in February 2012. The Review will propose a significant shakeup of bus services in the Wellington City area. It will affect all suburbs south of Grenada. The review is essentially focused on two key things: · consolidating existing routes and services into a more efficient system (e.g. so we don’t have empty buses running in some areas and times of the day, and overcrowded ones at other times); · increasing the reach of our bus services (i.e. frequency, evening and night services, and services into areas that are currently not, or are poorly, served).

The review will place an emphasis on: · Hubbing: where feeder services come to a hub, allowing you to join a primary service (in these instances commuters will have to interchange, increasing the need for safe and weather-proof bus stops, and integrated ticketing, but will also in many cases extending the reach and frequency of bus services). · Through-routing – where more bus services are joined up so that we remove the number of buses terminating at the Wellington Railway station and increase efficiency. It will be important that you make a submission on the Review, putting forward the issues of concern (good and bad) to your communities.
