It is in the interest of us all that our bus services are on time and get us to work on time. Reports in the NZ Herald this morning that commuters in Lynnfield were late to work because of ‘no shows’ must be taken seriously. WE are told to use busses and other forms of public transport because our roads are overcrowded and because such use is environmentally’ kind’ Excuses were put forward by the administrators but they do not hold water. If we do not have enough busses or the services don’t make enough money, then we need to increase the subsidies the companies are paid. It is essential that we increase and maintain services if we want a modern and viable city. Get off your butts, administrators and make things work. It is in the interests of us all!
